At Bishop Alexander L.E.A.D Academy, we welcome our duties under the Equality Act 2010. The school’s general duties, with regards to equality are:

  • Eliminating discrimination
  • Fostering good relationships
  • Advancing equality of opportunity

It covers all aspects of academy life to do with how we treat pupils and prospective pupils, parents and carers, employees, and members of the community. Everything our academy does must be fair, non-discriminatory and not put individuals or groups of people at a disadvantage.

Protected Characteristics

We will not discriminate against, harass or victimise any pupil, prospective pupil, or other member of the school community because of their:

  • Gender
  • Race
  • Disability
  • Religion or belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender reassignment
  • Pregnancy or maternity

We want our pupils and members of our academy community to feel safe from discrimination and feel valued as unique individuals.

We do this through:

  • A broad and balanced, inclusive curriculum
  • Treating all members of the community fairly
  • Exposing our pupils to concepts and ideas which may challenge their understanding and encourages them to be accepting of difference and promotes positive inclusive attitudes
  • Encouraging an environment of openness and discussion
