Mosspits Lane Equality Policy and Equality Objectives

Promoting the Protected Characteristics at Mosspits Lane


We work to ensure that our children understand that:

We all belong to our Mosspits family

Everyone is different

We celebrate our differences

We are all equal in our differences


The Equality Act became law in 2010. It covers everyone in Britain and protects people from discrimination, harassment and victimisation. Everyone in Britain is protected. This is because the Equality Act protects people against discrimination because of the protected characteristics that we all have.


Under the Equality Act, there are nine Protected Characteristics:

  1. Age
  2. Disability
  3. Gender reassignment
  4. Race
  5. Religion or belief
  6. Marriage or civil partnership
  7. Sex
  8. Sexual orientation
  9. Pregnancy and maternity


At Mosspits, we actively promote these in our curriculum and work to embed them into our ethos.


Under the Equality Act you are protected from discrimination:

  • When you are in the workplace
  • When you use public services like healthcare (for example, visiting your doctor or local hospital) or education (for example, at your school or college)
  • When you use businesses and other organisations that provide services and goods (like shops, restaurants, and cinemas)
  • When you use transport
  • When you join a club or association (for example, your local rugby club)
  • When you have contact with public bodies like your local council or government departments




Inclusion Quality Mark Inclusive School Award


Our Inclusion Quality Mark is currently due for renewal and our Inclusion Lead, Miss. Ainsworth, is working with all staff in order to work towards reacreditation.


In 2018, the school was awarded this prestigious quality mark which reinforces the work that we do to ensure that every child in our school is valued and has their education directly tailored to their learning needs. It represents the fact that we are a fully inclusive school who promote the social, emotional and academic well being of all of our pupils.
