Accessibility and Equality
At Yeadon Westfield Junior School, equal opportunities is the principle of ensuring all stakeholders in our school have equal chance to achieve, equal chance to participate, equal chance to fulfil their role in school and the wider community. Equality for all helps us all to develop a sense of identity and to function well in the world. We welcome our responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010. Our policy follows local authority recommendations.
We understand equality to mean treating everyone with equal dignity and worth, valuing their particular characteristics such as their age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation and socio-economic circumstances. We further understand that people have different needs, situations and goals and therefore achieving equality requires the removal of discriminatory barriers that limit what people, especially children and young people, can do and can be.
Other policies and school improvement action plans have a statement regarding equal opportunities whenever this may be relevant and useful.
