St Lawrence’s CE Primary School aims to meet its obligations under the public sector equality duty by having due regard to the need to:
- Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Equality ACT 2010.
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
- Foster good relations across all characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
At St Lawrence’s CE Primary School and Nursery, we are committed to being welcoming and considerate of everyone – we value difference in everyone in our school community and beyond
Why do we do this? In the Bible, St Peter says “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. (1 Peter 4:8-10)
We aim to show that all the children and adults at St Lawrence are welcoming, kind, loving and encouraging. We respect the rights, values and beliefs of all people through the Christian ethos of the school. We care for each other, and serve our community.
Our equality objectives for 2018 to 2022 are:
