  • Promoting Equal Opportunity
  • Eliminating Discrimination & Harassment
  • Valuing Diversity & Promoting Positive Relationships

The Equality Act 2010

The Equality Act 2010 replaces previous anti-discrimination legislation with a single Act. The Equality Duty is set out in section 149 of the Act. It replaces the three previous public sector equality duties – for race, disability and gender – and covers the following protected characteristics:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership (but only in respect of eliminating unlawful discrimination)
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation


We ensure that we have due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct that is prohibited by the Act
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a characteristic and those who don’t
  • Foster good relations between people who share a characteristic and those who don’t.

Aim of The Plan

At St Michael's Church of England First School we are committed to working together to provide an inspirational and exciting learning environment where all children can develop an enthusiasm for lifelong learning. We believe that children should feel happy, safe and valued so that they gain a respectful, caring attitude towards each other and the environment both locally and globally.
