Equality and Diversity Statement January 2023 - 2024
Clarity Independent School is committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion among all our stakeholders, and eliminating unlawful discrimination.
The aim is for our stakeholders to be truly representative of all sections of society and our service users, and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best.
The organisation – in providing services and facilities – is also committed against unlawful discrimination of service users or the public.
Our school aims to meet its obligations under the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) by having due regard to the need to:
Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and
people who do not share it
Foster good relations across all characteristics – between people who share a protected
characteristic and people who do not share it
This means, that in practice, we will:
Demonstrate awareness of our duties under the Equality Act 2010 by assessing the impact any decision or action will have on people with protected characteristics
Consider any equality implications when developing and approving policies and reviewing them regularly with equality in mind
Carry out these analyses seriously, rigorously and with an open mind. It must be more than a box-ticking exercise.
Doing this ourselves, as a school, so that equality practises become embedded in everything we do.
