Single Equality Scheme

The Single Equality Act combines the existing three duties into one new Equality Duty that covers all seven of the equality strands: age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.

In this school we will ensure that at every level, in all our work and throughout all aspects of the school community and its life, everyone will be treated equally. This Single Equality Policy summarises the school’s approach in ensuring equality for all.


At New York Primary School we are committed to achieving equality for all who learn

and work here. We aim to continue our development of a fair and supportive

environment for both staff and pupils. For pupils, we aim to ensure that all those with

the potential to benefit from the education we offer have the opportunity to do so,

whatever their background. We aim to have a diverse and well-motivated workforce

where all colleagues are treated equally and with respect.
