Equity Diversity and Inclusion

"Pupils are kind to each other. They are accepting of each other’s differences and interests." Ofsted Nov 2022 

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at Staples Road Primary School:

At Staples Road Primary School we are committed to:


  • promoting equality of opportunity
  • eliminating discrimination and harassment
  • valuing diversity and promoting positive relationships
  • providing an inclusive education which enables all pupils to develop their full potential
  • meeting the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.


The Equality Act 2010

The Equality Act 2010 replaces previous anti-discrimination legislation with a single Act. The Equality Duty is set out in section 149 of the Act. It replaces the three previous public sector equality duties – for race, disability and gender – and covers the following protected characteristics:


  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership (but only in respect of eliminating unlawful discrimination)
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation


We ensure that we have due regard to the need to:


  • eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct that is prohibited by the Act
  • advance equality of opportunity between people who share a characteristic and those who don’t foster good relations between people who share a characteristic and those who don’t.


At Staples Road Primary School we understand that Equality cannot exist without Equity. We work hard to ensure that support and scaffolds are in place so that the whole school community is recognised and valued, and each child is allowed to excel.





Our values are kindness, honesty, creativity and resilience
