Equal Opportunities

Goldenhill Primary Academy  understands that, under the Equality Act 2010, all schools have a duty to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
  • Advance equality between different groups.
  • Foster good relations between different groups.
  • Promote mental health and wellbeing.


Our setting’s overall values are underpinned by our statutory duties under the Equality Act 2010. We are dedicated to ensuring that every pupil receives an education that offers them the best chance at fulfilling their potential, and to promoting mental wellbeing amongst our pupils. We are committed to supporting and celebrating all pupils’ individual identities. We have developed this policy to provide a clear framework for how we will achieve our school’s aims.

Our school’s demographic state is directly linked to our overall aims for achieving equality. Specifically, we aim to:


  • To have a balanced, diverse and fair curriculum that fosters good relationships, celebrates cultural heritage and promotes caring, collaborative, critical and creative thinking.
  • To create an inclusive environment where individuals feel confident and at ease.
  • To develop professional practice that is consistently good or better that promotes good progress and outcomes for ALL children.  

(See Appendix 1: Equality Information and Objectives Statement for further details)


To achieve our aims, we will adopt the following methods:

  • Embedding equality within teaching and resources
  • Using key data indicators to understand the needs and characteristics of our school
  • Promoting community cohesion
  • Promoting parental engagement
  • Investing in regular staff training
  • Using key data, such as measures of wellbeing, to monitor the progress of pupils with protected characteristics
  • Regularly reviewing our policy to ensure it reflects current trends and issues
