Protected Characteristics

At Treviglas Academy, we recognize that fostering a culture of respect and understanding is integral to creating a harmonious and inclusive learning environment. This commitment is exemplified through our dedicated efforts, including the delivery of assemblies on Equality and Protective Characteristics.

Our message is clear: everyone is different, and we celebrate this diversity. It is within these differences that we find strength and richness in our community. Our assemblies aim to instill in our students the understanding that while we may differ in various ways, we are all equal in our differences.

The foundation of our approach lies in the Equality Act of 2010—a pivotal legislation that covers and protects everyone in Britain from discrimination, harassment, and victimization. At its core, the Equality Act safeguards individuals based on nine Protected Characteristics: Age, Disability, Gender reassignment, Race, Religion or belief, Marriage or civil partnership, Sex, Sexual orientation, and Pregnancy and maternity.
