Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

Equality Information

Menston Primary School is an inclusive school and welcomes people from all backgrounds. We believe that their different cultures, talents and life experiences bring richness and vibrancy to school life and help create an environment that supports us all in learning from each other.

We aim to be a community where everyone is treated fairly and with respect. We want everyone to reach their potential, and we recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful.

We take seriously our duties to eliminate discrimination, promote equality of opportunity and foster good relations between people of all backgrounds. This duty is set out in the Equality Act of 2010, which covers sex, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment and pregnancy or maternity.

Announcements

In line with the government directive, as of Monday 23rd March until further notice, Menston Primary School will be open as a childcare facility to our school’s key worker children and children that fall into the vulnerable category for those times when they cannot be safely cared for at home. Department for Education advice is that if it is at all possible for children to be at home then they should be. For any children registered for childcare, please report all absences to the school office before 9am. We have a 24 hour absence line 01943 873180 where you can leave a message to let us know what the reason for absence is. You must not send any children in if they are displaying the symptoms of Covid-19 which include a new, persistent cough and/ or a high temperature. If your child has sickness or diarrhoea they must be kept off school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
