Focus on Nursery
The Nursery children have been exploring their new setting with great enthusiasm.
The Harris Federation is pleased to publish its annual single equality plan. In developing this plan we have been able to identify and record the progress we have made towards achieving equality and tackling discrimination in order to come to a better understanding of the challenges still to be addressed. We will ensure that this single equality plan is effectively implemented and scrutinised so that we meet the obligations placed upon us by the equality duty. Promoting the priorities identified within our single equity plan will be a continuous process. It will be taken in partnership with the Federation community. The three aims of the general equality duty are as follows:
Compliance with the general equality duty may involve treating some people more favourably than others. The 8 protected characteristics are as follows: age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
The Governors and Staff of the Harris Federation understand that compliance with the general equality duty is a legal obligation that will better inform decision making and policy development. They further recognise that achieving the three aims stated will ensure the Harris Federation is able to successfully meet the needs of our diverse population of students, draw on the talents of a diverse local community to ensure our staff and governors better represent the wider community that we serve.
The Harris Federation has considered how well we currently achieve the aims of this duty with regard to the protected equality groups. Using information that we have gathered we have decided upon our equality objectives. Our plans to meet these objectives will be monitored annually.
In compiling equality information we have:
The outcomes are published within our Single Equality Plan, which has been agreed by our Governing Body. In line with legislative requirements we will review progress against our plan annually and review the entire plan and accompanying action plan on a four year cycle.
