Equality is extremely important at Barnby Road. Our school is inclusive; we focus on the well-being and progress of every child and we are committed to ensuring all members of our community are of equal worth.
We believe that the Equality Act 2010 provides a framework to support our commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality and fostering good relationships. It also ensures that we continue to tackle issues of disadvantage and underachievement.
We have recently formed an 'Equalities Forum'. This is a group of people, representative of our community, from the school Governing Body and staff who are committed to ensuring equality across the school. The remit of the forum is to look across the school at equality as a whole, and at specific things as required. The equality objectives of the school will be set by the forum as part of their work.
