Dearne Valley College is very proud to be an inclusive college.
We actively work to advance Equality and Diversity and eliminate any form of discrimination in line with our Group organisation’s Culture, Policies and Procedures and in compliance with The Single Equality Act 2010.
We welcome, value, respect, foster understanding between and protect the characteristics of:
- Gender re-assignment
- Marriage/Civil Partnership
- Religion/Faith/Belief or None
- Sexual Orientation
We monitor and analyse statistics in relation to staff and student against the protected characteristics in order to eliminate any potential discrimination and action plan to develop any reasonable improvements and services and close any achievement gaps.
Dearne Valley College (as part of the RNN Group) proactively seeks to work with staff, students, families, employers and other stakeholders and partners to advance the understanding of equality and diversity, to foster good relationships and consult about our plans, procedures and developments.
We formally assess the impact all new and updated policies may have on any of the protected characteristics and look for all opportunities to advance and foster equality and diversity.
We embed the whole concept of Equality and Diversity deeply within our culture and within our activities, procedures for all staff and students and external working relationships and business, including procurement.
We invite, encourage and welcome all suggestions, queries, and contributions to improve or services and advance our equality and diversity work within college and our wider group, and the contributions we can make to the wider community.
