Public Sector Equality Duty

Lighthouse School aims to meet its obligations under the Public Sector Equality Duty by having due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • In order to meet these general duties, Lighthouse School will annually:
  • Publish equality information, ensuring it does not identify specific individuals, to demonstrate how we are complying with the general duties
  • Publish and review Equality Objectives – which should be formally reviewed every 4 years at a maximum

Relationship, Sex and Health Education Policy Statement

Lighthouse School Leeds is a school for young people aged 11 to 19 with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) or related communication disorder.

We are committed to inspiring and enabling our students, delivering meaningful skills for life in a holistic, nurturing, and stimulating learning environment. This is achieved through exceptional teaching, unwavering support, outstanding work experience and positive interactions and role models. We repeatedly instil good behaviours in order to encourage resilience, independence, confidence and wellbeing in all of our students.

Lighthouse School Leeds takes its statutory duties to provide relevant, effective and responsible Relationship Sex and Health Education (RSHE) to all students as part of the personal, social, health economic (PSHE) education curriculum and Wellbeing provision seriously. Our core beliefs of ambition, versatility, compassion, innovation, happiness, devotion, optimism and respect underpin all that we do and are the foundation of our provision for RSHE for our students.

The school wants parents/carers and students to feel assured that RSHE will be delivered at an age appropriate level. RSHE lessons are differentiated to ensure it is also developmentally appropriate and that teaching is sensitive, with reference to the law and in line with the up to date government guidance.
