Equality Objectives

Whickham school has a longstanding commitment to equality of opportunity in all of its forms. Where equality of opportunity exists all staff and pupils work in a more rewarding and less stressful environment, one free from prejudice and harassment and one more likely to enhance their performance and achievement

The four key areas where the school strives to ensure equality of opportunity are:

  • Pupil admissions
  • The curriculum and pupil experience
  • Personnel
  • SEND

The school is required to demonstrate that we comply with our equality objectives and the public sector equality duty. In doing so we follow the advice from the Department for Education on The Equality Act 2010 and Schools. A copy of our full policy is available here.
