Equality 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

Northern Education Trust 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, religion and belief and sexual orientation).

We aim to provide the highest possible education for all of our students. The ethos of our academies clearly reflects our commitment to fully including and respecting all members of our academy communities.

The Equality Act requires us to publish specific and measurable equality objectives. Our equality objectives are based on our analysis of data and other information. Our equality objectives focus on those areas where we have agreed to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages.

We have set ourselves the following objectives for 2019/20:

  • Objective 1: Actively close gaps in attainment and achievement between students for all groups of students; especially students eligible for Pupil Premium, students with special educational needs and disabilities, looked after children and students from minority ethnic groups
  • Objective 2: To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular opportunities, with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity
  • Objective 3: To promote mental health awareness and develop appropriate interventions where necessary

We consult those affected by inequality in the decisions the academy takes to promote equality and eliminate discrimination on a regular basis.  Students are given the opportunity via ‘Student Voice’ to raise concerns and have their say. Questionnaires are sent out to students, staff and parents/carers to consult and obtain their views.
