Equality Scheme

Weobley High School aims to be a fair and equal employer and place of study. We aim to  take into account the following in everything that we do:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Socio economic circumstances

We therefore set ourselves objectives (below) which allow us to ensure we show equality in everything we do. Targets are drawn from these targets and actions taken where necessary. Each year the actions and targets are reviewed and new targets and outcomes set. Below is our current set of overriding objectives.
