Equality & Diversity

Carew Academy is committed to creating an inclusive environment, where people are treated with dignity and respect and where we anticipate and respond positively to different needs and circumstances so that everyone can achieve their potential.

We are committed to promoting and advancing equality of opportunity for those with protected characteristics, not only because it is an important part of the mission, vision and values of the Academy, but also because by attracting and retaining the most diverse range of students, staff and partners, we will ensure the Academy’s future success.

We believe that everyone has the right to be treated fairly and without discrimination, regardless of age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, circumstances or background in accordance with the Equalities Act 2010.

We will consult and involve those affected by inequality in the decisions Carew Academy takes to promote equality and eliminate discrimination through our Student Ambassadors and Class Representatives, Staff Forums, Parents Consultation Evenings, Local Governing Body, Whole School Events and discussions with the Local Community.  The views of all stakeholders will form part of our decision making processes.

Carew Academy complies with the Public Sector Equality Duty, which came into force in April 2011 (Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010).  We ensure this by annually updating the Equality and Diversity Policy (current version July 2020) and by annually reviewing our Equality Objectives (November 2019).  Our Equality Objectives are reviewed by all stakeholders, including students, staff, parents and the Local Governing Body.
