Public Sector equality objectives

To help us deliver our policy and meet our duties, we are:


  • promoting equal opportunity for all
  • opposing all forms of discrimination, intolerance and disadvantage by reducing inequalities that limit people’s life chances
  • making sure our workforce reflects the diverse communities of Waltham Forest at all levels
  • providing inclusive, accessible and excellent services to all


Our policy statement applies to all nine protected equality characteristics under the Equality Act 2010:

  • age
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race, religion or belief
  • sex and sexual orientation


The school adopts and is committed to meeting Waltham Forest’s equality objectives for 2015-18. These are to:


  • continue to promote and celebrate a cohesive borough ensuring that our community gets on well together
  • promote the opportunities for all members of our community to benefit from local regeneration and growth
  • use greater insight about our community to shape service delivery, including better understanding and managing the impact on protected groups
  • advance the equality of opportunity for all staff, by having a diverse workforce that reflects the community it serves


The framework provides us with a clear strategy for monitoring the progress towards our new equality objectives, and provides us with a baseline from which to measure the direction of travel. A report on progress will be produced by the end of January each year.
