SINGLE EQUALITY POLICY

Edenbridge  Primary School Single Equality Policy is drawn up in line with and in response to the 2010 Single Equality Act and the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011.

The contents are intended to outline the policies and procedures which are in place in this school in order to ensure compliance with the Act along with further information on the evidence that will be made public.

2010 Single Equality Act:

The overriding principle of all equality legislation is generally one of equal treatment for all peoples, regardless of race, sex, age or disability.

The 2010 Single Equality Act replaces and supersedes all existing equality legislation including the Race Relations Act, Disability Discrimination Act and Sex Discrimination Act. It provides a single, consolidated source of discrimination law.
The purpose of implementing the single equality scheme is to;

  • articulate the school’s commitment to equality which permeates all school policies and practices,
  • ensure that everyone who belongs to, or comes into contact with, ourschool community is valued and respected,
  • promote equality of opportunity and eliminate unlawful discrimination,harassment or victimisation, and
  • comply with statutory duties under equalities legislation in one document

The Act places a duty on Governing Bodies to publish information to prove how their school complies with the Public Sector Equality Duty.
