Equality Objectives 2021-2024

St. Edward’s Academy Cheddleton (SEAC) is an inclusive school where all are welcome. We celebrate diversity and champion equality and expect everybody who enters our school to behave in a way which respects the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010 outlined below.

At St. Edward’s Academy Cheddleton, we believe that the Equality Act 2010 provides a framework to support our commitment as a church school to valuing all of God’s children. In particular we aim to do this by:

  • respecting diversity.
  • being courageous when tackling discrimination.
  • promoting equality of opportunity by developing understanding and tolerance (wisdom).
  • fostering compassionate and honest relationships between people who share protected characteristics and people who do not share it.
  • Persevering in our effort to challenge and eliminate inequality, harassment, victimisation, and discrimination.
  • Ensuring that Equality is a whole school responsibility.

SEAC’s Equality Objectives

To achieve this, our equality objectives 2021 – 2025 are as follows:

  • To raise awarenes of equality and diversity.
  • To ensure that the school promotes positive school based (Ambassadors), local and national role models that young people positively identify with, who reflect and broaden the school’s diversity in terms of age, disability, race, gender, religion or beliefs.
  • To ensure tolerance and respect towards individuals who identify with any of the protected characteristics.
  • To ensure that there is an equality of opportunity within our school.
