Equality Statement

At Hilltop First School we are committed to ensuring equal opportunity in line with the Equality Act of October 2010. We seek to demonstrate this through all aspects of school life and in particular through our commitment to every child, fulfilling their potential. This commitment applies to our work in the classroom, our pupil support systems, our recruitment and retention of staff and our work in the local and wider community.


As a school we will ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to achieve the very best that they can.  We will also guide parents on how they can best support their child's achievement.  Where pupils experience barriers to their success we will work with them to address these in a sensitive and sympathetic way.


Through our work in the classroom we will ensure that pupils understand the importance of equality and what forms discrimination can take and the impact discrimination can have.  We will also seek to foster within our pupils their own commitment to promoting equality.


As an employer we will not discriminate on any of the following:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Disability
  • Religion or belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Race
  • Marriage and civil partnership


As a school or an employer, we will not accept any of the following:

  • Direct discrimination
  • Discrimination by perception
  • Harassment
  • Indirect discrimination
  • Associative discrimination
  • Harassment by a third party


The Equality Objectives and Equality Policy are both available on the main Policies page.
