Merrow CE Infant School Inclusion and Equality Statement
Our Inclusion policy includes our whole school - pupils, staff, governors, parents, carers, volunteers and all those within our extended school community. We acknowledge that it is very important for us all to work together in achieving our aim of being fully inclusive and accessible and ultimately in providing a quality learning experience for our children.
Our Inclusion and Equality policy covers a three year period from 2018 and will be reviewed by the Head Teacher and ratified by the Governing Body of this school again in 2021. The policy integrates our statutory duties in relation to seven identified areas: sex, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, and age. The aim of our Inclusion and Equality is to promote inclusion and community cohesion.
This school follows the guidance set out in the Department of Education’s document The Equality Act 2010 and Schools, May 2014. The responsibilities cover staff, pupils and people using the services of the school, such as parents and community and include our objectives to eliminate discrimination and harassment within these inclusion and equality areas.
Meeting our Duties
Under the statutory duties, all schools have a responsibility to promote inclusion and equality.
Our commitment to this is evidenced in our Inclusion and Equality policy.
