Equality analysis assessment (EAA)

A school has a duty to:

  • Promote equality of opportunity
  • Eliminate harassment and discrimination
  • Promote good relations between people of different racial groups
  • Promote positive attitudes towards disabled people.

An equality analysis assessment (EAA) is a tool for identifying the potential impact of a school policy (existing, revised or new), procedure or practice on the school community (staff, pupils, parents, local residents etc).

It can assist a school in ensuring that its activities best meet the needs of the school community and fulfil the requirements of anti-discrimination and equalities legislation set out in the Equality Act 2010.

It can help to improve policies, strategies, procedures, functions, projects, reviews and organisational change for the whole school community, not just minority groups.
