Here at Elm Park Primary School we aim to be a community where everyone is treated fairly and with respect. We take our legal duties on equality very seriously. We welcome our general duty under the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations.
We are required to publish information as well as equality objectives, which show how we plan to reduce or remove particular inequalities or disadvantages.
Elm Park Primary takes seriously its obligation to eliminate discrimination. Our approach is outlined in our Single Equality policy, which is available to view from Related Pages.
Fostering Good Relations For All
Our Personal, Social, Cultural and Health Education and Religious Education curriculum promotes understanding of a range of groups in society.
In addition, fostering good relationships between individuals and groups in school is a key part of our daily assemblies.
In class, teachers will regularly use circle time to discuss specific incidents and issues that have arisen as we promote good relations and diffuse any tensions which may emerge.
All racist incidents are dealt with swiftly, logged and reported to governors and the local authority.
