Equality Objectives

Braunton Academy committed to developing policies and practice that raise attainment for all children and close the gap between those facing disadvantage and their peers. 

Under the Equality Act 2010 we have a legal duty to publish information to demonstrate compliance with Public Sector Equality Duty of that Act. 

Braunton Academy recognise our general and specific duties having due regard to the need 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 between people of all characteristics.


These duties extend to all members of our Academy and specific regard needs to be given to those who have protected characteristics – Age, Disability, Gender Reassignment, Marriage & Civil Partnership, Pregnancy & Maternity, Race, Religion & Belief, Sex and Sexual Orientation.

Braunton Academy is committed to:

  • Considering equality as we develop policy and acting on those considerations;

  • Being conscious of the need for our policy to be informed by equality evidence, collecting the evidence, and using it;

  • Improving our practice in promoting equality, and engaging with our local, national and international communities.
