Equality and Diversity

Supporting equality and diversity

At Walmley Infant School, we are committed to equality for our school community. This includes all our pupils, their parents, carers and staff. We will not discriminate against anyone on the grounds of their ability, racial or ethnic origin, gender, religious beliefs or disabilities.

We welcome our statutory duty, under the Public Sector Equality Duty, not to be discriminatory in our practices as the education, wellbeing and care of every child is central to our vision and values.

We believe that the curriculum is enhanced when pupils learn to understand and respect differences of gender, race, religion, age, ability, disability, social disadvantage, sexual orientation or any other personal characteristics. We do all we can to make sure that our policies and the decisions we make consider all people who are protected under the Equality Act

Public Sector Equality Duty

Every year we review how we comply with the Public Sector Equality Duty. This ensures we maintain a strong focus on meeting our responsibilities in ways that are respectful and make sense to our school community.

Our school’s equality objectives

Our School’s equality objectives are:

  • To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural values at every opportunity, in order to embed a climate of mutual respect, remove intolerance of any kind and support the growth of mental wealth and resilience.
  • To diminish the difference in achievement between any groups of children in school, by ensuring that all children have their needs fully met with the purpose of facilitating accelerated progress and achieve their maximum potential.
