About Us

Equality Objectives

 

We recognise that the public sector equality duty has three aims and they are to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct under the Act
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • Foster good relations between people who have a shared characteristic and those who do not 

‚ÄčThe Academy will annually review how well we achieve these aims with regard to the protected groups under the Equality Act (race, disability, gender, gender re-assignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, religion and belief and sexual orientation.)

 

We aim to provide the highest possible education for all at the City of London Academy (Southwark). The ethos of our school clearly reflects our commitment to fully including, respecting all members of our school community.

Based on our community feedback, we have set ourselves the following objectives for 2016/17:

  • To ensure that staff and the governing body are aware of current legislation surrounding equality and diversity and understand the school's responsibility

  • To hold regular events that promote equality with a focus on gender equality and stereotypes

  • To promote mental health awareness and develop appropriate interventions where necessary

  • To carry out equalities work around intersex and sexual orientation to promote understanding and reduce prejudice.
