Equality and


Promoting equality and diversity

Ealing is one of the most diverse, multicultural London boroughs. The council and our schools share a belief in the principles of social justice and the active promotion of genuine equal opportunity for all our staff. We are committed to equality in employment, service delivery and community engagement. Our aim is to promote educational excellence and improve outcomes for all children and young people in Ealing, no matter what their background is.

Schools have a duty under the Equality Act 2010 to publish details on their school website of how they are specifically complying with the public sector equality duty and their equality objectives.

As part of Ealing Learning Partnership we are committed to working with schools to bring about positive change. Recent projects include:
- A young people’s voice podcast, with a group of 17 to 25 year-olds about race, identity and racism
- No learner left behind
- Black Lives Matter and anti-racism projects.

These have included work on developing assembly and classroom resources addressing George Floyd’s murder and the Black Lives Matters protests, parental voice and the Black Caribbean parents forum.

Equality and diversity in employment

We recognise, respect and value diversity within our workforce as an asset and key resource in enhancing, enriching and maximising performance to effectively meet the needs of our pupils.

We aim to ensure that all current and potential employees are treated fairly and that no applicants are discriminated against in the recruitment and selection process. We will not tolerate discrimination and will look to act promptly if it occurs.
