The Equality Act 2010 ensures protection from discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of specific characteristics (referred to in legislation as “protected” characteristics).
For schools this means that it is unlawful to discriminate against pupils or treat them less favourably because of their gender, race, disability, religion or belief, gender reassignment and sexual orientation.
Beaumont Hill Academy complies with the Public Sector Equality Duty and we work to:
- Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
- Advance equality of opportunity between different groups
- Foster good relations between different groups
- Publish information to show how we comply with the Equality Duty (we do this through the Trust’s Equality and Diversity Objectives Statement)
- Publish equality objectives which are specific and measurable
Further information on our equality objectives can be found on the Policies and Procedures page on the EVAT website.

The safety and well-being of our children and young people is our priority. We consider our pupils to be very vulnerable and we believe it is important they are equipped with skills to live as independently as possible. This includes the ability to recognise and identify risks to their safety and well-being.
All of our staff receive regular training in recognising safeguarding and radicalisation issues so they can effectively and confidently identify the signs of abuse, neglect and exploitation. We work with a range of specialist safeguarding agencies, including:
- Children’s Social Care Team
- Family Intervention Team
- Family Support Workers
- Community Nursing Team
- Paediatric consultants
- School nursing team
- Occupational therapists
- Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services

The Pupil Premium is additional funding that the Government gives to schools for each pupil on roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the last 6 years, those who are or have been looked after by the local authority and children who have parents in the armed forces.
The amount given to the school varies each year. It must be spent on supporting pupil’s education and it is up to the school to determine how it is best spent to improve opportunities and maximise outcomes for pupils.
A high percentage of our pupils (58%) are entitled to receive Pupil Premium funding. This funding has enabled us to build strong pupil welfare support, provide more academic guidance and high-quality teaching, while targeting more intensive support on those pupils who are in receipt of the funding and who need it the most.
All schools are required to report the amount of funding they have received, plan how they will spend it and explain the outcomes achieved from the investment made.
You can read our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2021- 2024 here. This is a 3 year strategy which is regularly reviewed.
Sports/PE funding is intended to support schools to offer primary aged children opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities.

Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND)
Beaumont Hill Academy is a specialist provider for children with special educational needs aged 2 – 19yrs, which provides education and support to children with special needs. There are four broad categories of Special Educational Needs (SEN):
- Communication and interaction
- Cognition and learning
- Social, emotional and mental health
- Physical and sensory
Every child in Beaumont Hill is unique and we have high expectations for all of our children. We aim to help our children develop into self-assured, confident, happy, positive young people. Our ethos starts with a focus on each individual starting with a clear understanding of their unique needs and building a pathway to support their progression through school.
Every teacher is skilled in ‘Quality First Teaching’: this means that teachers assess, plan and teach all children at the level which allows them to make progress with their learning across a broad and balanced curriculum. Every parent and carer are invited to be involved in their child’s education and to be part of the process of reviewing progress and provision. Parents’ aspirations and hopes for their child are critical to our planning.
In addition, Beaumont Hill Academy is co-located with Springfield Academy and Haughton Academy in the Education Village in Darlington. We offer our children and young people more learning experiences, by blending our specialist teaching and learning resources with opportunities for inclusion.
You can read our SEND policy on our Policies page.
