Equality Information and Objectives 

February 2018 – February 2019

The Public Sector Equality Duty 2011 has three aims under the general duty for Schools:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

We have considered how well we currently achieve these aims with regard to the protected groups under the Equality Act.  Highworth Combined School and Nursery aims to reduce and challenge inequalities. Governors have therefore agreed on the Equality Objectives below:

Equality Objectives

  • To empower our parents to support their children at home further by running free weekly parenting courses (term time only) 
  • To improve outcomes for children with social and emotional barriers to learning through working with Learning Mentors or attending a Nurture Group in our school (starting in September 2018).
  • To continue to improve access and communication with parents, governors and local community through the constant development of the school website.

If you have any questions on these please e-mail the school via the office.
