Equality Duty

Here you will find information about how we meet the Equality Duty.

Newfield School complies with the general and specific duties of the Equality Act (2010). In accordance with the duty we publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard to the need to;

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination
  • Advance equality of opportunity
  • Foster good relations

These specific duties have been considered in relation to all our policies and procedures in school. Our objectives will be reported on and published as part of the Governance public documents available for inspection under the Freedom of Information Regulations and Data Protection duties and in the school newsletter to parents.

By the time pupils leave the school they are often able to give their viewpoints and consider the thoughts and feelings of others. Ofsted, 2016

For more information please see our Equality Duty Policy

Our Equality Objectives are set, reviewed and published annually in our School Development Plan.

School ensures that there are opportunities for activities and education reflecting a diverse range of people from widely differing backgrounds and that due consideration is given to resources to ensure that they are representative of diverse local and global communities.

The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding. The school’s promotion of pupils’ rights and responsibilities is exceptional. By the time pupils leave the school, they have developed into well-rounded young people able and willing to make a positive contribution to society. Ofsted, 2016

‘The school have continued to further develop… provision for pupils, staff, parents and the community, listening to the views of all stakeholders… breaking down barriers, building trusting relationships and ensuring every member of the school community experiences a sense of belonging to this wonderful school.’ WAS, 2024
