In October 2010, the new Equality Act was introduced and it requires the Academy to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

There are nine protected characteristics under the Equality Act: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.

St Peter’s Catholic Voluntary Academy strives to do everything we can to make sure all people are treated fairly and that all our students have access to the best education they can. As such, we are determined to eliminate unfair and unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation. We also do everything we can to advance equality of opportunity and to develop good relations between groups within the Academy and the local community.

The Academy encourages, celebrates and values the diversity of all our community. We actively promote the principle of equality for all. We aim to ensure that everyone within our community is treated fairly, with respect and dignity. We seek to eliminate any form of inequality, bullying or discrimination.
