Equality and Diversity

We recognise that the public sector equality duty has three aims and they are to:
  • eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct under the Act
  • advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • foster good relations between people who have a shared characteristic and those who do not
The Leadership Team and Governors at Greenvale School will annually review how well we achieve these aims with regard to the protected groups under the Equality Act (race, disability, gender, gender re-assignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, sexual orientation, religion and belief and sexual orientation.)

Greenvale equality objectives 2019-2022

We aim to provide the highest possible education for all at Greenvale School. The ethos of our school clearly reflects our commitment to fully including, respecting and supporting all members of our school community whatever their cultural background, belief, gender, race or disability.

Having referred to and analysed our equality information we have set ourselves the following objectives:
  • To promote understanding and appreciation of diversity, including celebrating what we all have in common, and promoting respect for all the different protected characteristics as defined in the Equality Act 2010.
  • To ensure equal access to high-quality education for all learners
  • To promote positive relationships among learners and staff to reflect a positive and respectful culture
  • All students achieve and make progress regardless of their learning difficulty.
