Equalities Statement

We recognise The Equality Act 2010 and comply with the duties explicit within, ensuring that there is equality of opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers, irrespective of race, gender, disability, belief, sexual identity and orientation, age or socio-economic background.

The Equality Act is a law which protects everyone from discrimination. It means that discrimination or unfair treatment on the basis of certain personal characteristics is against the law.

The Act requires us to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard for the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimization and any other conduct prohibited by the act.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
  • Foster good relationships between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

Grendon is committed to equality, both as an employer and as a service provider, ensuring that everybody is treated fairly and respectfully. We strive to make sure that our school is a safe and secure place for everyone.

Our ethos and vision, that focus on both academic and pastoral curriculum, fully promote the protected statuses of the 2010 act. Grendon recognises that that people have different needs and understands that treating people equally does not always involve treating them the same.

Grendon aims to ensure that nobody experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination because of their:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Ethnicity, colour or national origin
  • Gender
  • Gender identity
  • Marital or civil partnership status
  • Pregnancy or having recently had a baby
  • Religion or belief
  • Sexual identity or orientation

In order to comply, we:

  • Publish information within our Equalities Policy annually
  • Publish Equality Objectives within our Equalities Policy every 4 years.

We recognise that these duties reflect the international human rights standards as expressed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention on the Eights of People with Disabilities and the Human Rights Act 1998: We are a Rights Respecting school. At Grendon, all policies and procedures are informed by and will have regard to this statement.

Our full Equalities Policy can be found under Our School - Policies.
