3 EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY POLICY MISSION STATEMENT Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College is committed to embracing diversity and inspiring all learners to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding to equip them for success in a globally interconnected world. The College encourages all members of our community to be socially responsible citizens respecting our shared values and individual differences.
4 1. EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY STATEMENT 1.1 Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College has valuing diversity and promoting equality as one of its core values. These govern the way we work with each other and our approach to all learners and stakeholders. 1.2 The College aims to promote equal opportunities for potential and current staff, students, visitors and other stakeholders, and will actively implement all of its equalities policies in order to combat discrimination and to promote good relations between different groups. 1.3 We are proud to be located in a city such as Birmingham, and value the diversity of all the communities we serve. We acknowledge and celebrate the different backgrounds, cultures, languages, abilities and beliefs of our learners and staff. The College aims to promote community cohesion, and to provide a safe and harmonious learning environment where everyone feels that they belong. 1.4 The College works within the existing legislation relating to equality and diversity, and will take a range of actions each year to ensure it meets its general and specific public sector duties. We are opposed to, and will tackle, any harassment and all other discriminatory attitudes and behaviours, particularly in relation to the protected characteristics of the Equality Act i.e. age, disability, ethnicity, (including race, colour, nationality), gender, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, religion and belief and sexual orientation, but also in relation to social background, class and trade union affiliation. 1.5 We will continue to take positive action to address any under- representation in the student, staff or governor profile, and to tackle any gaps in the success, retention or achievement rates for any equality group. We will also work to eliminate any barriers that might inhibit the success or progression of any groups of students or staff. 1.6 We will uphold and promote through our all our activities the British Values of respect and tolerance both for each other and for visitors to the College.
5 2. THE LEGAL FRAMEWORK 2.1 The College will comply with the current legal framework of the Equality Act 2010 in both its spirit and letter. 2.2 The College will take a holistic approach to work on Equality and Diversity, and will work to a Single Equality Scheme which incorporates all of its proposed actions in relation to age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, maternity and pregnancy, marriage and civil partnership and religion and belief. We will also consider issues of socio-economic inequality and class that are not required under the Act. The Scheme will be monitored and reviewed annually. 2.3 In relation to disabled students, the College will adhere to its duties under the Equality Act, which now replaces the SEN and Disability Act 2001 (SENDA) and will make reasonable adjustments to the curriculum, information and the built environment for disabled students. We recognise that the 'anticipatory' aspect of this duty means that we need to consider what sort of adjustments may be necessary for disabled people in the future, and where appropriate, will make these adjustments in advance. 3. BROAD PRINCIPLES 3.1 The College will publish the actions that it intends to take each year to implement its general equality duty set out in the Equality Act 2010 (the Act) to: Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act. Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. 3.2 The College will continue to implement and assess the impact of its policies, procedures and practices on present and potential students, staff and visitors, to ensure that no equality group is disadvantaged.
6 The College believes that high quality education and training is a right for all, and will encourage all students and staff to reach their potential. 3.3 The College will actively work towards offering equality of opportunity to all students, staff and visitors. 3.4 All participants in the educational process will be made aware that they have a legal and moral responsibility to eliminate discrimination and harassment and to promote equality of opportunity and good relations between people from different backgrounds and communities, and between different equality groups. 3.5 The College will take active steps to eliminate all forms of discrimination (whether direct or indirect). Bullying, harassment or any other discriminatory behaviour will not be tolerated. 3.6 The College will take positive action to try to recruit a workforce and student body that is diverse and reflects the local population, and will address any differences in outcomes for any particular group 4. SPECIFIC PRINCIPLES LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT 4.1 The College will ensure that equality and diversity is reflected in its values and vision statements, and that a high profile is given to these issues at all levels of the College s work. 4.2 The Governing Body and managers will ensure that the College is fully compliant with legislative requirements on Equality and Diversity. 4.3 The College will monitor how well equality of opportunity is promoted, and discrimination tackled, through all of its quality assurance and self assessment processes. 4.4 The College, and individual managers, will regularly monitor the success, retention rates and attendance rates of learners from different equality groups, and will take action to address any gaps.
7 4.5 The College will constantly review its provision and support services to ensure they are designed to take into account the specific needs of all equality groups. 4.6 The College will ensure it has in place a Single Equality Scheme which includes a comprehensive implementation plan that is updated at least annually. 4.7 The College will continue to assess the impact of its policies, strategies, plans and practices as required by legislation. 4.8 The College will work with sub-contractors and employers and providers of work-based learning to ensure that equality and diversity principles are monitored and met, and that any under-achievement or underrepresentation is addressed. 5.
