Equal Opportunities – Social Justice
Schools take seriously any reports of racist incidents. As part of the school’ s approach to promoting positive discipline a record of all racist incidents is maintained and each incident is fully investigated.
Schools are required to notify the local authority of any racist incident.
Schools and education establishments have a legislative duty to undertake and assessment of equality and diversity. This is the process of systematically assessing and consulting on the effects that a policy, process or strategy is likely to have on different groups in the community who might experience disadvantage/ barriers in accessing services. The process includes monitoring the actual effects of the policy once it is put into practice. Policies do not affect everyone in the same way. By assessing in the early stages, any adverse impact can be identified and minimised.
