The objectives will help to meet the three arms of the general duties required in the Equality Act 2010:
• Eliminate unlawful discrimination
• Advance equality of opportunity
• Foster good relations
Barrow CEVC Primary School has considered how well we currently achieve these aims with regard to the eight protected equality groups: race/disability/sex/gender reassignment/age/pregnancy and maternity/religion and belief and sexual orientation. In compiling this equality information we have:- Identified evidence already in the setting of equality within policies and practice and identified gaps. - Examined how our setting engages with the protected groups, identifying where practice could be improved.
