With school values of fairness and respect, our Equality Objectives are central to our school's Mission.
The Governors of our school, after careful consideration, decided to link our Equality Objectives to raising the achievement of our children who are more vulnerable to not achieving well because of a range of characteristics that impact upon their access to and readiness to learn. The Governors of our school want us to remove any barriers to learning to enable all children to be able to achieve well and live their lives fully.
Furthermore, the Governors of the school want us to provide a curriculum that celebrates and embraces our diversity, where everyone can feel included and be inspired to achieve well.
As outcomes for our policy and objectives we strive to ensure:
All pupils are treated equally and as favorably as others.
All reasonable adjustments are made to promote equal opportunity and equal treatment of all members of the school community.
All pupils have their individual needs met, taking full account of their age, disability, gender, gender-identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation in accordance with the requirements of The Single Equality Act 2010
Please note that our objectives were set in 2017 anticipating three 'normal' academic years. Regretfully, the Covid pandemic has meant that we have only had two 'normal' years of progress and we do not have the full three years of anticipated data to evaluate the objectives achievement. As such, the Governors of the school have made the decision to extend the objectives, as they remain relevant, until we have the next set of robust achievement data and a full year in school. Without data in 2019 or 2020 and two extremely disrupted years, we anticipate undertaking a robust evaluation in July 2022 and drafting our new objectives and policy for the next academic year.
