Equality

At J H Godwin we have a strong belief in our responsibility to educate our pupils to respect and welcome all people in the world and to build an understanding of difference; reduce, challenge and eradicate stereotypes and prejudices.

We present positive role models and challenge preconcieved ideas in our learning, assemblies and our community of:

*Race

*Gender

*Age

*Religion or beliefs

*Sex 

*Sexual orientation

*Diasability

*Gender reassignment

*Marriage or civil partnership

*Pregnancy or maternity

...so that children may see the importance of and value a rich society where all people have access to opportunity and kindness consistently and without prejudice.

We actively promote the diverse culture of the UK as it is not always as richly represented in Blacon and see it as our responsibility to take our children to visit larger cities to understand the wider world in which our children are growing and developing in.

The Headteacher and Governing Body aims to:

  • carry out its legal duty in complying with the relevant legislation (including The Sex Discrimination Act, Race Relations Act, Disability Discrimination Act and Employment Equality Regulations);
  • reinforce the school’s position as a provider of high quality education and as a good employer providing development opportunities;
  • ensure that equality remains high on the school’s strategic agenda;
  • establish good people management practice and to set out a proactive agenda in which discrimination is recognised as an organisational issue which needs an organisational response;
  • achieve a staffing composition that reflects the composition of the wider community;
  • ensure all staff work together with a shared sense of purpose to meet the needs of every pupil;
  • ensure that pupils and staff contribute towards a happy and caring environment by showing respect for, and appreciation of, one another as individuals;
  • ensure that complaints or evidence of failure to comply with the school’s equal opportunities policy will be dealt with promptly and fully investigated according to the relevant procedure (e.g. complaints relating to staff may be investigated either under the disciplinary, grievance or anti-harassment procedure as appropriate). All forms of discrimination by any person within the school’s responsibility will be treated seriously as such behaviour is unacceptable.
