Meeting the Public Sector Equality Duty
Newmarket Academy’s key aspirations set out clearly an ethos that treats everyone with equal respect and strongly rejects all forms of discrimination against students or staff.
Newmarket Academy’s policies all reflect a commitment to equality. In particular, reference should be made to the anti-bullying, behaviour and SEND policies, including the accessibility statement.
The school’s curriculum statements reflect a similar commitment to equality.
Newmarket Academy strives to actively close gaps in attainment and achievement across groups of students, including those eligible for the pupil premium, those with special educational needs and disabilities, looked after children and pupils from minority ethnic groups. Its progress in this important area is monitored by the senior leadership team and governing body.
Through living out its ethos and by its taught RSHE programme, assemblies, tutor time, the annual curriculum enrichment week and the day-to-day treatment of individuals, Newmarket Academy constantly strives to meet its public equality duty.
In its recruitment practices, Newmarket Academy ensures it complies with all equality legislation in employment.
