Equality Objectives

Horsforth School Equality Objectives

At Horsforth School we believe passionately in our mission statement of ‘opportunity and achievement for all’. We are committed to striving for equality and in 2016 added ‘those who have the least deserve the most’.

The Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) requires all schools to publish specific and measurable equality objectives. Our objectives focus upon those areas that address the needs of our students, staff and community.

Objective 1:

To improve the outcomes for disadvantaged children and those who have SEND so that the gap between these students and advantaged students nationally is zero or positive.

Objective 2:

To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experience, both in and beyond the school so that discrimination and bullying due to gender, gender reassignment, race, religion and background never occurs in our school.

Objective 3:

To ensure the school environment is accessible as possible to all students, staff and visitors.
