Equality

Equality Statement

 

At Meath Green Junior School we believe that everyone has the right to be treated with dignity and respect. We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity in line with the Equality Act of October 2010. This Act prohibits direct and indirect discrimination, harassment and victimisation of people on the grounds of protected characteristics these being disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation and age.

 

We seek to show this through all aspects of school life and in particular through our commitment to every child fulfilling their potential through classroom based learning, outdoor learning, pastoral care, intervention groups, work in the local and wider community and our recruitment and retention of staff.

 

All our staff are committed to ensuring that all pupils are challenged to achieve their potential and will also guide parents on how they can support their childrens’ achievements. Where pupils experience barriers to learning, we will work with them to address these in a sensitive and supportive way. We will ensure that all pupils understand the importance of equality and foster within our pupils their own commitment to promoting equality.

 

We will have due regard in the day to day policies and practice of our school for the need to:

• Eliminate unlawful discrimination
• Advance equality of opportunity
• Foster good relations between people from different groups
