St John Fisher Catholic School is committed to an Equality Policy which promotes equality of opportunity. We aim to foster positive attitudes to counter any anti-social behaviour which works, intentionally or unintentionally, against prospective, current or former employees, prospective, current and former pupils, services users and those with protected characteristics.
Protected characteristics are defined under the Equality Act 2010 as disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation and age (applies to over 18years)
We will eliminate discriminatory practices and customs which may threaten equality of opportunity. We will monitor our curriculum and pastoral role so as to broaden the perspectives of all pupils by helping them to understand the world in which they live.
The overall objective of this Equality Policy is to provide a framework for the School to pursue its equality duties to eliminate unlawful direct or indirect discrimination, victimisation or harassment and promote equality of opportunity and encourage good relationships between people from all backgrounds and protected characteristics. The principles of this policy therefore apply to all members of the School community.
