Protected Characteristics at Stathern

We work to ensure that our children understand that:

  • There are no outsiders at Stathern Primary
  • 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.

Every single policy at the school has an equality, diversity and inclusion statement. 

Under the Equality Act, there are nine Protected Characteristics:

Gender reassignment
Religion or belief
Marriage or civil partnership
Sexual orientation
Pregnancy and maternity
