Equalities Statement and Objectives
We welcome our duty under the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to promote community cohesion.
We welcome our general duty under the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations; and our specific duties to publish information every year about our school population; to explain how we have due regard for equality; and to publish equality objectives which show how we plan to tackle particular inequalities of outcome, and reduce or remove them. Similarly in accordance with the Equality Act 2010 we aim to make sure that no-one experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination because of their age; any disability they may have; their ethnicity, colour or national origin; their gender; their gender identity or reassignment; their marital or civil partnership status; being pregnant or having recently had a baby; their religion or beliefs; their sexual identity and orientation.
We welcome the general principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and accordingly have regard in particular for the needs of children and young people who are disadvantaged or vulnerable, and their parents and carers.
We welcome the emphasis in the Ofsted framework on the importance of diminishing differences in achievement.
As published within our 2021-2025 Equality Statement and Action Plan, our four-year objectives are to:
- To increase the attendance of Gypsy Roma/ Other White children.
- To ensure that equal opportunities are given to all pupils in extra-curricular opportunities.
- To ensure that all pupil groups receive equal opportunities to make good progress towards their academic targets.
- To ensure that all pupil groups receive equal opportunities to achieve the expected level of attainment.
