The basic equality between all human beings has always been fundamental to Roman Catholic belief and teaching. St Joseph’s RC Primary School acknowledges and welcomes diversity among pupils, staff, governors and visitors. This involves tackling the barriers which could lead to unequal outcomes so that there is equality of access and the diversity within the school community is celebrated and valued. We believe that equality at our school should permeate all aspects of school life and is the responsibility of every member of the school and wider community.


Every member of the school community should feel safe, secure, valued and of equal worth.

At St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Primary School, equality is a key principle for treating all people the same.

The school does not discriminate against anyone because of:

  • age

  • being or becoming a transsexual person

  • being married or in a civil partnership

  • being pregnant or on maternity leave

  • disability

  • race including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin

  • religion, belief or lack of religion/belief

  • sex

  • sexual orientation

    (These are called ‘protected characteristics' under the Equalities Act 2010.)

    We promote the principles of fairness and justice for all through the education that we provide in our school.


    To ensure these principles are carried out we have set two Equality Objectives which will be monitored by the Governing Body and reviewed each year. they are on the attached action plan.
