Our Equality Duties
We aim to be a community where everyone is treated fairly and with respect. We want everyone to reach their potential, and we recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful.
We take our legal duties on equality seriously. We welcome our general duty under the Equality Act 2010
to eliminate discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations.
We are required to publish equality information as well as equality objectives, which show how we plan to reduce or remove particular inequalities or disadvantages. This document is reviewed and updated annually.
Equality Targets 2019-20
- To rigorously monitor progress of all pupil groups to identify under performance and adjust provision to support progress.
- To ensure attainment for all groups is closer to the national.
- To particularly target the more able to ensure sufficient challenge.
- To further improve attendance rates particularly for the PP / WB children by working closely with children, families and external agencies.
Progress towards these targets will be monitored by the Senior Leadership Team and Governors.
In addition to this short statement, we also have a full school policy on Equal Opportunities and Equality & Diversity.
