Equalities objectives

d. We will make every effort in creating equality of opportunity in order to ensure they are accessible and fair to everyone. Every person has the right to be treated fairly, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, disability, age culture, religion, nationality or caring responsibilities. Where necessary we will implement reasonable adjustments, or additional support, to ensure equality of access to an education and suitable working environment.

e. Our staff and governors who agree and deliver our education provision will recognise diversity and demonstrate a proactive approach in their day-to-day work. They will ensure that everyone is treated fairly, recognising special needs and understanding differences. Behaviour will reach our high standards of conduct (Staff and students) and the learning environment we provide will be safe and accessible for those studying and working.

f. The Trust will adhere to statutory government legislation and give consideration to other relevant guidance, which aim to make sure that everyone is treated with equality.

4.1 Employment

b. All employment policies refer to the provision of the Equalities Act 2010.

c. The Trust recognise that the Act extends beyond the protected characteristics of an individual employee and has broader responsibilities to employees and situations that may be covered by the Act.

e. Employees who are in breach of this policy will be dealt with under the Trust’s disciplinary policy.

4.2 Student Provisions

a. The Trust and its member Academies will ensure that students are provided with appropriate support to recognise their individual needs. This includes protection under the Act extending the reasonable adjustment duty to require schools to provide auxiliary aids and services to disabled students.

b. All policies relating to the provision of education, the curriculum, behaviour for learning, attendance, exclusion, medical treatment and Child Protection and safeguarding policies should consider the provisions and duties of the Act.

4.3 Contractors and Service Providers

a. The Trust will ensure that all service providers that are contracted to provide services to students, staff or visitors will comply with Equalities legislation.

b. Where services are deemed not to meet Trust / Academy standards, in relation to equal opportunities and fairness, contracts may be terminated.

Skills, Experience & Knowledge


The Equality Act 2010 defines a person as disabled if they have a mental or physical impairment, which has a substantial and long-term and adverse effect on the person’s ability to carry out normal day to day activities.

Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974

All posts involving direct contact with children are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. However, amendments to the Exceptions order 1975 (2013 & 2020) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are ‘protected’. These are not subject to disclosure to employers and cannot be taken into account. Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Ministry of Justice website. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to provide details of all unspent convictions and those that would not be filtered, prior to the date of the interview. You may be asked for further information about your criminal history during the recruitment process. If your application is successful, this self-disclosure information will be checked against information from the Disclosure & Barring service before your appointment is confirmed.
