Protected Characteristics

At Esh C of E we work to ensure that our children understand that:

There are no outsiders at Esh

Everyone is different

We celebrate our differences

We are all equal in our differences

We believe that all should feel welcomed, valued and nurtured as part of our community. This inclusion is essential as preparation for our children so they can make a positive contribution to life in the multi-cultural, multi-faceted world in which we live. We aim to provide an environment where all feel valued and free from discrimination, reflecting the world in all its rich diversity.

The Equality Act became law in 2010; it makes sure that people with particular characteristics are protected from discrimination. It is your right that you should not be treated differently based on:

  • age
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage or civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation.
