Equality & Accessibility
As a Catholic school, we believe that to be in communion with Christ we have to understand that every person is equally important to God. Our Lady's is committed to ensuring equality for every person in the school community, regardless of age, disability, gender (including transgender), sexual orientation, religion/belief and race.
The Equality Act has a single equality duty of positively combating inequality. In order to meet the requirements of the Equality Act, the Trust will give ‘due regard’ to the need to:
• Eliminate Unlawful Discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Act
• 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.
