Equalities at Mile Oak Primary School

Equalities Statement

At Mile Oak Primary School, our vison and values promote inclusion and equality for all pupils, staff, parents and carers. We champion the Equal Opportunities Act 2010 to ensure that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. Our school embraces the aim of working together with others to improve children’s educational and wellbeing outcomes, and notes the rights set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We tackle discrimination through the positive promotion of equality, by challenging bullying and stereotypes and by creating an environment which celebrates diversity.

Equalities Policy 2023

Equalities Objectives 2021 - 2024

We all have equal rights but we have different needs and we recognise that to provide for these we need to ensure equality of opportunity for all pupils. We aim to build on our similarities and to seek enrichment from our differences and so promote understanding and learning between and towards others to create a cohesive community.

The Equality Act 2010 requires schools to publish information to show how we are working to:

  • Eliminate discrimination
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic* and people who do not share it
  • Foster good relations between groups of people

*Protected characteristic is the term used in the Equality Act to describe a range of different groups, including:

Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs

Gender, including gender reassignment and transgender pupils

Pupils of colour

Pupils for whom English is an additional language

Sexual orientation

Gypsy, Roma and Traveller children

Religion or belief

In addition to these groups, we believe it is vital to consider the specific needs of other vulnerable pupils such as those who are looked after, children from refugee families, those who have a carer’s role and children eligible for pupil premium funding.

Our school community is made up of a wide range of families and below is a summary of our census data showing the range of differing groups we have in the school:
