Equality Objectives

Equality Objectives

In compliance with the public sector equality duty Hazel Leys Academy has considered very carefully the key areas to ensure that we provide an environment where all children, visitors and staff are welcomed, valued and are treated equally.

The Academy Equality Duty document has been set out in five areas:

  1. Information about the pupil population, achievement and progress
  2. Main equality challenges
  3. Due regard to equality
  4. Consultation and engagement
  5. Next steps

Our behaviours support our commitment to equality:

  • Accepting and understanding
  • Pride for all
  • Inform and support all in being determined to succeed in their goals, ambitions and aspirations
  • Fair
  • Respect
  • Open communication, listening, responding, challenging, acting as positive role models to others
