Equality and Diversity
Equality and inclusion are at the heart of Heath Primary School. We have a passion to include everyone and deep desire to treat everyone equally. We accept others for who they are and respect differences. Our aim is to provide an excellent education for all our students. Our way of doing this is to work heard to improve students attainment and the standards to teaching and learning continually. At this time we also aim to meet the needs of the whole person and the whole community because we understand that the whole of life is eduction and that everyone who part of a students life affects that students understanding of life and, his or her education. In this sense every person matters.
The Equality Act 2010 gathers together various different pieces of equality legislation which have been developed over a number of recent years. It sets out some key equality provisions for the delivery of education and a requirement for public bodies to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relationships between different groups. Against the background of the UK’s increasingly diverse communities, Heath Primary School recognises that this Act plays a major role in recognising the UK’s historic commitment to tolerance.
The Equality Act 2010 is, therefore, an important and significant piece of legislation for us because its key provisions underpin the aim of Heath Primary School itself: an equal and inclusive society in which difference is understood and respected. We are committed to meeting its obligations within the law and being a good expression of Heath Primary Schools’ own commitment to equality.
