Protected Characteristics

Protected Characteristics

At Bretherton Endowed CE Primary School we ensure that all children gain an understanding of the world they are growing up in, and learn how to live alongside, and show respect for a diverse range of people. As stakeholders at Bretherton Endowed we promote equality and pupils’ understanding of the protected characteristic

Under the Equality Act, there are nine Protected Characteristics:
Gender reassignment
Religion or belief.
Marriage or civil partnership
Sexual orientation
Pregnancy and maternity


The Protected Characteristics are actively promoted in school through:

  • Conscious role modelling by all adults in the school community
  • Our commitment to Equality through achieving the Lancashire Equality and Diversity Awards
  • Active engagement and communication with parents and carers
  • Assemblies, Masses and liturgies
