Penwortham Primary School is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout our school.
There are a number of statutory duties that must be met by every school in line with legislation from the Race Relations Amendment Act 2000, Disability Equality Duty 2005 and Equality Act 2010.
Our school is committed to meeting its public sector duties and acknowledges that we have a statutory duty to:
Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
Promote equality of access and opportunity within our school and within our wider community.
Promote positive attitudes to difference and good relationships between people of different backgrounds, genders, cultures, faiths, abilities and ethnic origins.
The Leadership Team and Governors at Penwortham Primary School will regularly review the progress that we are making to meet our equality objectives with regard to protected groups (race, disability, gender reassignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, sexual orientation, religion/belief and sexual orientation) under the Equality Act 2010.
