Meadowside Primary School is committed to upholding all elements of the Equality Act October 2010. We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.
Everybody has the right to be treated with respect.
To develop positive relationships between children
To maintain the caring ethos of the school community, in which all pupils feel valued and secure
To prevent conflict between children at an early stage
To ensure that any reported incidents are dealt with sensitively, promptly and effectively
The new General Duty replaces the three existing public sector equality duties for disability, race and gender. It covers all protected characteristics and has three main aims requiring public bodies to have due regard to the need for:
1. Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and other conduct that is prohibited under the Equality Act 2010.
2. Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.
3. Foster good relations between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.
We have adopted a policy and through our action plan continually review and seek to improve our provision in this regard.
