Live to learn, learn to live
Crow Lane is committed to equality.
In this respect:
We are aware of the current legislative framework.
We welcome our duty under the Education and Inspection Act 2006 to promote Community Cohesion.
The School is bound by the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) of the Equality Act 2010 and the Specific Duty. To comply with this Duty:
We aim to make sure that no-one experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination because of:
**age **disability **ethnicitycolour or national origin **gender **gender identity or reassignment **religious beliefs
**their marital or civil partnership status **being pregnant or having recently had a baby **sexual identity and orientation.
The Act does not cover socio-economic circumstances as a protected characteristic. However, in our school, socio-economic circumstances are taken into consideration. We acknowledge the ‘intersectionality’ (Richardson 2013) of economic circumstances and that pupils may have a range of additional characteristics (protected characteristics) which intersect and must be taken into account when measuring the impact of the Pupil Premium Grant.
Crow Lane recognises that these duties reflect international human rights standards as expressed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), The UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities and the Human Rights Act 1998.
We welcome the general principles of UNCRC and have regard, in particular, for the needs of children and young people who are disadvantaged and vulnerable and their parents and carers.
