All staff involved with the collection, processing, disclosure and destruction, of personal data will be aware of their duties and responsibilities by adhering to these guidelines.

The school has appointed East Riding of Yorkshire Council to be the Data Protection Officer as part of a traded service. To contact the school regarding any data protection matters please email inmans.primary@eastriding.gov.uk

Equality & Diversity

Inmans Primary School is committed to creating an inclusive environment, where everyone is treated with dignity and respect and where we anticipate and respond positively to different needs and circumstances so that everyone can achieve their potential.

We are committed to promoting and advancing equality of opportunity for those with protected characteristics, not only because it is an important part of the mission, vision and values of our school, but also because by attracting and retaining the most diverse range of students and staff, we will ensure Inmans Primary School’s future success.

We believe that everyone has the right to be treated fairly and without discrimination, regardless of age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, circumstances or background in accordance with the Equalities Act 2010.

We will consult and involve those affected by inequality in the decisions Inmans Primary School takes to promote equality and eliminate discrimination through our Staff Forums, Parents Consultation Evenings, Parent Engagement Meetings, Local Governing Body, Whole School Events and discussions with the Local Community.

Inmans Primary School complies with the Public Sector Equality Duty, which came into force in April 2011 (Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010).  We ensure this by annually updating the Equality and Diversity Policy (current version ).

Our Equality and Diversity Policy ensures that when we carry out our work we have due regards to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who don’t
  • Encourage good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who don’t
