Equality and diversity statement
The college is committed to ensuring the promotion of equality of opportunity for all members of the college community. We seek to create a climate where all forms of discriminatory behaviour are challenged, diversity is celebrated and a culture is generated in which all staff and students are encouraged to flourish and achieve their full potential.
The college is keen to advance equality of opportunity for all (in particular, between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not) and ensure that it underpins all policies, valuing all members of the college community equally. The college aims to foster good relations between all members of its community and, in particular, between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
Equality and diversity (E&D) objectives 2021-2024
Blackpool Sixth is committed to challenging discrimination, both face-to-face and online for both groups who share a protected characteristic (race, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, marriage or civil partnership, sex, disability, gender reassignment, religion or belief) and those who do not.
We will also do everything we can to prevent widening of the disadvantage gap due to the impact of coronavirus.
The Strategic Equality Committee will monitor progress towards these objectives.
