The Single Equality Scheme
The Nawton and Rosedale Abbey Federation welcome the equality duties on schools. We believe that all pupils and members of staff should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential whatever their background, identity and circumstance.
We are committed to creating a community that recognises and celebrates difference within a culture of respect and cooperation. A culture which promotes equality will create a positive environment and a shared sense of belonging for all who work, learn and use the services of our schools.
This Single Equality Scheme provides a framework for our school to promote equality, inclusion and good community relations, and to tackle prejudice, discrimination and their causes.
Our Single Equality Scheme is based on the core principles that its effectiveness will be determined by:
- Active involvement with key stakeholders, not just in developing this Scheme but also in its review and implementation Proactive leadership
- Prioritising activities that produce specific, tangible improved outcomes
- Removal of attitudinal and cultural barriers
