In line with our mission statement we want to ensure equality exists within our school so that all children are included and supported to achieve their personal best.
Equality Objectives 2017-2018:
To narrow gaps in learning between vulnerable groups of pupils to enable more to reach greater depth in their attainment.
To further promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curriculum activities, with more specific reference to equality and diversity.
To increase the level of pupil voice ensuring distributed representation on the school council, fostering good relationships amongst all groups of learners.
To link equality to the teaching of British Values more in school.
The Public-Sector Equality Duty:
