The Equality Act became law in 2010. It covers everyone in Britain and protects people from discrimination, harassment and victimisation. Everyone in Britain is protected against discrimination because of the protected characteristics that we all have.
At St. Paul's, we pride ourselves on having a well-considered approach to the teaching of the protected characteristics, in order to:
eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation
advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
We also respond to any incident as it arises within the school, the community or is in the news.
