Our Equalities Statement
Creating Learning With Love
Our equality objectives are:
- To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular and extra-curricular opportunities . We aim to meet this objective with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity.
- To reduce prejudice and increase understanding of equality through direct teaching across the curriculum.
- To move beyond deterministic notions of fixed ability and to model teaching and learning behaviours that avoid labelling.
- To narrow the gap between boys’ and girls’ attainment in writing in the primary phase (Y2 – Y6).
- To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experience, both in and beyond the school.
- To eradicate prejudice related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010.
- To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities.
- For more information you can find our Equality Policy on the school policies page.
Equality Statement 2021-22
Under the public sector equality duty (PSED), all schools must have due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010; to advance equality of opportunity between those who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not share it and to foster good relations across all protected characteristics. This means schools must take into account equality considerations when policies are being developed, adopted and implemented. We regularly review all policies and procedures which are recommended to schools to ensure compliance with education and employment legislation
including the Equality Act 2010.
