Equality at SMW
The school's Equalities Policy aims to ensure the school meets its legal requirements as defined in the Equality Act 2010. However, The Governing Body views the law as only the starting point and recognises that, in seeking to fulfill the school’s Mission Statement and develop the ethos of the school, every member of our school community must be valued and will therefore be provided with equality of opportunity to develop in full their particular talents and abilities as an individual.
As a school we welcome our duties under the Equality Act 2010. The general duties are to:
- Eliminate discrimination,
- Advance equality of opportunity
- Foster good relations
In order to meet our general duties, listed above, the law requires us to carry out specific duties to demonstrate how we meet the general duties. These are to:
- Publish equality Information – to demonstrate compliance with the general duty across its functions.
- Prepare and publish equality objectives.
