Equality Statement

Chantlers Equality Statement 


At Chantlers Primary School we are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity in line with the Equality Act 2010. We seek to demonstrate this though all aspects of school life and in particular through our commitment to every child fulfilling their potential. This commitment applied to our work in the classroom, our pupil support systems, our recruitment and retention of staff and our
work in the local and wider community.

As a school we will ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to achieve the very best that they are capable of and will also guide parents on how to support their child’s achievement. Where pupils experience barriers to their successes we will work with them to address these in a sensitive and sympathetic way.

Through our work in the classroom we will ensure that pupils understand the importance of equality and what forms discrimination can take and the impact discrimination can have. We will also seek to foster within our pupils their own commitment to promoting equality. As an employer we will not discriminate on any of the following.


  •  Age
  •  Disability
  •  Gender-reassignment
  •  Race
  •  Religion or belief
  •  Sex
  •  Sexual orientation
  •  Marriage and civil partnership


Nor as a school or employer will we accept any of the following

  •  Direct Discrimination
  •  Indirect Discrimination
  •  Discrimination by perception
  •  Associative Discrimination
  •  Harassment
  •  Harassment by a third party
  •  Victimisation


We are working with the Governing Body to further develop and review our current school Equality Policy in line with the requirement of the Equality Act 2010 and in doing so will identify:


  •  What the policy will include
  •  Consultation with Governors, Staff, children and parents
  •  How the policy and its impact will be monitored including recording and addressing any
  • discrimination that arises
  •  How and when we will report on how well we are progressing our aims for equality and the
  • impact of the policy on achieving these aims.
