HILLBOROUGH INFANT AND NURSERY SCHOOL

 

Our Equality Duties

 

Hillborough Infant and Nursery School aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all children and promotes their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We are committed to equality;

reflecting and valuing diversity.

As defined by the Act, as a public authority we must have due regard to

the need to:

 

  1. Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited under the Act;
  2. Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it;
  3. Foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.

 

As a school, we also have two specific duties to perform in relation to

the Equality Act of 2010:

 

  1. To publish information which shows we have due regard for inequalities as defined by the Act;
  2. To publish at least one equality objective and report annually on its progress.
