We will ensure that at every level, in all our work and through all aspects of the school community and its life, everyone will be treated equally, reflecting the Single Equality Act 2010. We will not discriminate against the protected characteristics: age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation. We do this by ensuring our Equality & Diversity Policy is regularly reviewed and updated.
Please see the policies page (https://www.floreatwandsworth.org.uk/parents/policies) for a link to the latest version of our Equality & Diversity Policy which has been sent to our families and staff for their consideration and feedback. This consultation process was completed in the Spring Term of 2020-21.
The Equality Objectives are set out below and are also included within the policy.
The Equality Act 2010 sets out that all public bodies will publish equalities objectives every four years. Below are the equalities objectives that we have chosen to focus on over the next four years, from 2020 to 2024, to improve equality, diversity and inclusion at Floreat Wandsworth.

To reach and include every family equally and ensure fairness in access and engagement.
To monitor and analyse pupil achievement and attainment by race, gender and disability and act on any trends or patterns in the data that require additional support for pupils.
