Equality Duty and School Accessibility Plan

Equality Duty Statement

Huncoat Primary is a smaller than average sized primary school with 210 children compared to the national average of 245 with ages ranging from 3-11years.


Huncoat Primary School will abide by the provisions of the Equality Act 2010 and our policies outline the commitment towards all our members of the school community. For our school this means not simply treating everybody the same but understanding and tackling the different barriers which could lead to unequal outcomes for different groups of pupils in school, whilst celebrating and valuing the achievements and strengths of all members of the school community. These include for example:
  • Pupils
  • Staff
  • Parents/carers
  • The governing body
  • The community we serve
  • Visitors to school
  • Multi-agency staff linked to the school
  • Students on placement


We believe that equality at our school should permeate all aspects of school life and it is the responsibility of every member of the school and wider community. Every member of the school community should feel safe, secure, valued and of equal worth.

At Huncoat Primary School, equality is a key principle for treating all people fairly and creating a society in which everyone has the opportunity and right to a full education and live together happily without discrimination of namely: gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion, belief, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity.
