Equality for all at Havant Sixth Form College

Havant Sixth Form College is fully committed to promoting, maintaining and supporting equality and diversity in all aspects of its work. The College aims to create an environment where individuals have the opportunity to achieve their full potential with a feeling of self esteem and the College expresses its opposition to all forms of inequality.

Havant Sixth Form College celebrates and values the diversity brought to the College by students and staff from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and is committed to treating all students and staff with respect and dignity regardless of disability, religion, age and sexual orientation.

We have developed our Single Equality Scheme and Action Plan to extend to all of the protected characteristics of age, disability, gender reassignment, religion or belief, race, sex, and sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity.

The full Single Equality Duty and Action Plan is available on Moodle.

What can you expect from us?

  • A serious commitment to all forms of equality reinforced through our tutorial system for students, training for all staff and safeguarding policies and procedures
  • Disciplinary action being taken against anyone who shows discrimination against any student or member of staff
  • Equal access to all our learning programmes and facilities
  • An environment where you can expect to learn without fear of discrimination, harassment or victimisation

How will you know that the College is checking that everyone is treated fairly?

We will collect and analyse information about students and staff from different groups by:

  • The number of student and staff applications
  • The number of students succeeding on their courses (success rates)
  • Asking students and staff to complete questionnaires
  • Analysing any complaints we might receive

  • Discussing all related issues at the termly Equality & Diversity group meetings

Once the results of our checking are available, the College will consider its targets and take action to reduce any disadvantage suffered by students or staff from any specified group. The Single Equality Action Plan will be updated annually.

What should you do if you have a complaint?

If you feel you have been discriminated against or harassed, you should put your complaint in writing to reportit@havant.ac.uk and for more information please contact the Deputy Principal.
