Equality Duty

 

Lunt’s Heath Primary School Equality Statement

 

“Lunt’s Heath Primary School promotes equal opportunities for all pupils, staff and service users. We ensure that all persons have equal access to the full range of opportunities provided by the school. We celebrate diversity and actively encourage respect for all as well as promoting fairness and justice in the education that we provide.”

 

All schools are bound by the Equality Act 2010 which aims to ensure all people have equality of opportunity in school and life. At Lunt's Heath we have due regard for the need to advance equality of opportunity between children and adults who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

The relevant protected characteristics are:- age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and materinty, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation.

 

Our Vision

Education is for all. We believe embracing equality, diversity and inclusion makes us stronger and better equipped to meet life’s challenges. By working collectively we have the power to inspire future generations of children.

 

Aims

1.Lunt’s Heath Primary School promotes equal opportunities for all pupils, staff and service users.
2.We ensure that all persons have equal access to the full range of opportunities provided by the school.
3.We celebrate diversity and actively encourage respect for all as well as promoting fairness and justice in the education that we provide.

In 2019 we were independently audited for our commitment to equality and the positive action being taken across all areas of school operation and school life. You can read the report below which details how we are meeting our duty.

A recent example of our commitment to euality is evident in our consultation and involvement of parents and carers around the introduction of our updated Uniform Policy in September 2020.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child contains 54 articles covering all aspects of a child's rights.

At Lunt's Heath Primary School we apply the Convention and work equally for all children. We are determined that all children, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status, have the same entitlement to these rights. All of the rights are linked and none are more important than another.

There are four articles in the Convention that are seen as special. They’re known as the “General Principles” and they help to interpret all the other articles and play a fundamental role in realising all the rights in the Convention for all children. They are:

  1. Non-discrimination (article 2)
  2. Best interest of the child (article 3)
  3. Right to life survival and development (article 6)
  4. Right to be heard (article 12)
