Equality Objectives 2018-2021

The Equality Act 2010 requires schools to publish specific and measurable Equality Objectives. Paddock School is committed to and passionate about equality for all.  Our Equality Objectives are based on our analysis of data and other evidence. They focus on areas on which we have agreed to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages. We will regularly review the progress we are making to meet our equality objectives.
