Sarisbury Infant School


Sarisbury Infant School prides itself on its inclusive approach, and the Governing Body has ensured that an appropriate range of policies has been in place to guide the work of staff and volunteers in this area. The Equality Act of 2010, through the Public Sector Equality Duty, requires the school to have due regard to promote disability, race and gender equality and to produce a single policy and action plan. 


This is intended to ensure that every child and every adult in the school community:

· is treated fairly

· is valued as an individual

· is able to participate to the full whilst at school, and

· is encouraged to aspire, and helped to achieve.
