Equality Statement

Welcome to Equalities at Northolt High School.  You will find here information about how the school ensures it meets its Specific Equalities Duties (These are things our school must do).  The Public Sector Equality Duty requires our school to publish information about Equalities.

The Equality Act 2010 clearly states that the following groups must be taken into account.  People identified in the following groups are considered to have a protected characteristic.

Protected Characteristics

  1. Age
  2. Disability
  3. Sex (gender)
  4. Race (ethnicity)
  5. Pregnancy and Maternity
  6. Religion and Belief
  7. Sexual Orientation
  8. Transgender
  9. Marriage and Civil Partnership
  10. The information we publish and analyse must be clearly linked to the three aims (General Duties) of the Public Sector Equality Duty.  General Duties are the things that schools aim to achieve.

 General Duties

The three aims of the Public Sector Equality Duty are to:

  1. Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act.
  2. Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
  3. Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
