Public bodies, including local-authority-maintained schools, are covered by the public sector equality duty in the Equality Act 2010.
As part of our duties we publish:
- an Equalities Information profile of our school based upon the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010 – this is updated and published every year
- our school’s Equality Objectives – these are reviewed annually and updated at least once every 4 years
- for further information please view or download our Equalities Policy and Equalities Information and Objectives Policy in the School Policies section of our website.
At Bearpark Primary School, we respect each other’s age, disability, gender, gender identity, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy, race and nationality, religion or belief and sexual orientation.
In January 2019, all staff and children have started a journey to make our school LGBT+ friendly.
Miss Teasdale is our LGBT+ lead member of staff. We are currently (October 2021) working towards a bronze award for ‘Educate and Celebrate’.
