Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging at Beeston Primary School

At Beeston Primary School we believe that all children should receive equal access to the full school curriculum and wider school experience regardless of first language, disability, race, gender, cultural or socio-economic background. We believe that every child has the right to equality of outcome and to achieve their full potential. In order to achieve equity we use positive action and reasonable adjustments to ensure all stakeholders have an  equal chance to achieve, participate and fulfil their roles in school and the wider community. We welcome our responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010. Our Equality Policy and Scheme follows local authority recommendations.

At Beeston Primary, we aim to create a diverse curriculum which reflects the diversity of our pupils, our local and wider community. We celebrate diversity by learning about a broad range of historical and current figures in all walks of life. This provides the opportunity to see a wide range of humanity, see people to which they can aspire that are similar to themselves and develop tolerance and understanding of people with different beliefs, religions, genders, abilities and sexual orientations.

The school is committed to proving equality of opportunity for all irrespective of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender (Sex)
  • Gender reassignment
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race or racial group (including colour, nationality and ethnic origin or national origins)
  • Religion or belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Marriage and Civil Partnership

At Beeston Primary School we aim to promote equality and develop positive relationships, by tackling any form of discrimination. As part of our duty under the Equality Act 2010 and the Public Sector Equality Duty we aim to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations in relation to the protected characteristics.

Equality Objectives

The Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) requires all schools to publish specific and measurable equality objectives. Our equality objectives are based on our analysis of data and other information. Our equality objectives focus on those areas where we have agreed to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages.

We will regularly review the progress we are making to meet our equality objectives.

Our Aim

Beeston Primary School aims to meet its obligations under the public sector equality duty by having due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
  • Foster good relations across all characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
