Equality Objectives

Introduction
Our Equality Objectives have been developed in line with the Equality Act 2010 and Wellspring Academy Trust’s Equality Statement, Policy and Objectives. These objectives are part of our commitment to promoting equality and providing an inclusive school.

1. Promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular opportunities, with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity

2. Increase staff awareness of Equality and Diversity

3. Actively close gaps in attainment and achievement between pupils and all groups of pupils; especially students eligible for free-school meals, students with special educational needs and disabilities and looked after children

The Public Sector Equality Duty or ‘general duty’.
Section 149(1) of the Equality Act 2010 puts various requirements on academies when exercising their functions. The general duty requires academies to have due regard to:
  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advance equality of opportunity between different groups
  • Foster good relations between different groups
