Equality, Diversity and Objectives

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.)


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 spiritual, moral, social and cultural development though appropriate curricular opportunities, with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity
  • To ensure that there are sufficient opportunities within the curriculum to address equalities issues
  • To ensure that all students make progress, including vulnerable groups
  • To promote the fundamental British values of Democracy, the Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect, and Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
