Protected Characteristics

Protected Characteristics

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.

Awareness of the 9 protected characteristics is actively promoted in school through:

 

 

  • Our school vision, SDP, and SEF
  • Our school core values
  • Our school behaviour policy
  • Conscious role modelling by all adults in the school community
  • Active engagement and communication with parents and carers
  • Collective Worships
  • Weekly focus on British Values
  • Discussion within curriculum subjects, taking a cross-curricular approach
  • Promoting articulation by building appropriate language and a coherent vocabulary
  • Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) sessions
  • Religious Education (RE) lessons, RSE lessons and protected characteristic talks

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.
