The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard for the need to:
- Eliminate unlawful discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Act
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not (the protected characteristics are age; disability; gender reassignment; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief; sex; and sexual orientation.
- Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
What does this mean for E-ACT?
Equality is very important to E-ACT. We ensure that we are mindful of equality, and compliant with the legislation in all of our policies and procedures.
Each of our academies have their own bespoke set of equality objectives that work for the academy and the community it serves. As a multi-academy trust, we have also chosen to have a set of overarching equality objectives that we will look to achieve over the next four years, in addition to the specific academy objectives.
We have formed these objectives by identifying what is important for us as trust to focus on for both our pupils and our staff over the next four years.
You will find details of these objectives in the document below.
