Equality and Diversity Information

South Brent Primary School and Ventrus Multi-Academy Trust is committed to complying with the Equality Act 2010, and the Public Sector Equality Duty.  As a provider of education and an employer of staff, the Trust has due regards for the needs to:

  • Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Act,
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it,
  • Foster good relations across all characteristics - between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.


We are committed to ensuring and promoting equality of opportunity for all children, staff, parents, and guardians irrespective of race, gender, disability, belief, sexual orientation, sex/gender identity, marriage/civil partnership and age.


Our aim is to develop a culture of diversity and inclusion in which all those within the establishment’s community can celebrate their identity and participate fully in experiences and learning. Enabling our children to take part as fully as possible, in every part of the establishment’s life, by developing each child’s self-confidence, recognising their strengths, and encouraging them to achieve their full potential.


Our establishment has two specific duties to assist us in meeting our general duty, set out by the Equality Act 2010


They are:

  • To publish information to show how we are complying with the equality duty.
  • To prepare and publish one or more specific and measurable equality objectives.


Our five equality objectives are in response to this general duty.


  1. To narrow the gap in attainment between groups of children, for example girls and boys.
  2. To improve the attendance between groups of children, for example White British and Ethnically diverse children.
  3. Improve knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable children to appreciate and value difference and diversity, for example increasing understanding between pupils from different faith communities.
  4. Monitor and track incidents of bullying, prejudice and racism, including reporting incidents to the local authority.  Reviewing the common themes, using data to understand the link between incidents and irregular attendance, and adjust our curriculum and intervention in response
  5. We will provide a supportive and inclusive working environment for all, actively promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
