Ofsted Considerations

‘The public sector equality duty requires schools to have due regard to the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations for pupils, staff and others using school facilities. Meeting these three requirements contributes greatly to achieving outstanding progress and attainment because achievement of these aims means that pupils work – whether it is in class or in the school – in an ethos and atmosphere of dignity and fairness, where they are free to develop themselves, knowing that differences are respected and they are encouraged to become independent learners and take responsibility for their actions and become good citizens.’
