This school is committed to the Equality Agenda and we aim to achieve equality of opportunity by removing direct and indirect discrimination wherever it exists.
At Meadowside, we will ensure that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as non-disabled people. We will not treat a pupil/staff member with a disability less favourably than others because of the nature of his/her disability. We will make all reasonable adjustments to ensure that a pupil or member of staff with disabilities is not placed at a disadvantage because of his/her disability.
All policies reflect the Equality Act (2010). The basic principle behind the Act is that it is unlawful to discriminate against a person because of his/her:
- Sexual Orientation
- Religion or Belief
- Pregnancy or new motherhood
- Marriage/civil partnership
