Parkgate Primary School

Equality Group

The Equality Act 2010 (the Act) replaced previous anti-discrimination laws with a single Act and came into force on 1st October 2010. A key measure in the Act is the public sector Equality Duty, which came into force on 5th April 2011.

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

• Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation 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 between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

At Parkgate Primary School, we believe all members of our community should contribute to advancing equality, diversity and inclusion. We will aim to do this by focusing on:

  • Remove or minimise disadvantages suffered by people with protected characteristics due to having that characteristic.
  • Take steps to meet the needs of people with protected characteristics that are different from people who do not have that characteristic (including taking account of a disability).
  • Encourage protected groups to participate in public life and in any other activity where participation is disproportionately low.

Equality Policy

This group has been designed to create a closer relationship between our parents and our school.  Regular meetings take place throughout the year where parents discuss various topics to enable a greater understanding of how and why we make the decisions we make. 

Please keep checking back for updated minutes of meetings.
