For Male and Female Staff and Students
Educ. Act – ’98:9(e) &Equal Status Act 2000
The Equal Status Act 2000 precludes discrimination on grounds of gender in the provision of services (including education).
It is the policy of Swords Educate Together National School to give boys and girls equal opportunities in curricular areas.
The Employment Equality Act, 1997 precludes discrimination on grounds of gender in the employment of staff. Nothing will appear in an advertisement which will indicate a preference for one gender over the other. Neither will any questions be asked at interview which could be interpreted as discriminating on grounds of gender.
The school’s policy in this regard is enshrined in the statement that, “This school is an Equal Opportunities Employer.”
