Equalities Information and Objectives

Equality at Halton Community Combined School:

We are an inclusive school and pride ourselves on the opportunities that are given to all of our pupils.


Every pupil within our school should expect the highest standards of teaching and learning leading to good outcomes for all.  All of our pupils have the responsibility to be active and engaged learners, showing excellent behaviour at all times whilst showing respect and tolerance for their peers and the staff that work with them.


Every single one of our pupils is exposed to a broad and balanced school curriculum that is supplemented by trips and visitors each term. Work is tailored appropriately to meet pupils needs and pupils will always be challenged to achieve their very best in every lesson.  All pupils have the opportunity to engage in a wide range of extra -curricular activities and opportunities.  


Pupils are taught through our curriculum about different religions, cultures, backgrounds, nationalities and key values.  Through this they develop mutual respect and understanding for all adults within the school and their peers. School values are taught alongside British values and pupils are celebrated for showing these values in and around the school.


Halton demonstrates a strong culture of inclusion and through the vision, values and culture of the school.  Staff and governors are committed to promoting equality of opportunity across the school community and take seriously the requirements of the Public Sector Equality Duty as defined by legislation in 2010:

The Public Sector Equality Duty aims to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act. By removing or minimising disadvantages suffered by people due to their protected characteristics. 
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. By taking steps to meet the needs of people from protected groups where these are different from the needs of other people
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. By encouraging people from protected groups to participate in public life or in other activities where their participation is disproportionately low.
