Equality

At Burlington Infant and Nursery School, we are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all children, staff and all those receiving services from the school. We believe that diversity is a strength of our community, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which people feel free whether or not to disclose their gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion or belief, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity, political belief, economic circumstance or immigration status, and to participate fully in school life. The Equality Act 2010 protects people from discrimination on the basis of these ‘protected characteristics’. Every person has some of the characteristics so the Act protects everyone against unfair treatment.
