We Achieve We Believe We Care

Protected Characteristics

We believe that ANY young person from ANY background deserves an EQUAL chance to be successful in whatever they choose to do. We believe that children should be aware of the protected characteristics and show respect to those who share the protected characteristics.

There are 9 protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010 and all schools should be able to demonstrate that no form of discrimination is tolerated and respect is shown to everyone.

The 9 Protected Characteristics are:

At Crowton, we pride ourselves on having a well-considered approach to the teaching of the protected characteristics, in order to: 

  • eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation

  • advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it

  • foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it

The 9 Protected Characteristics are actively promoted in school through:

  • Our school behaviour policy 

  • Conscious role modelling by all adults in the school community 

  • Active engagement and communication with parents and carers
