Equality Objectives

We aim to provide all our children with the opportunity to succeed, and to reach the highest level of personal achievement

To do this, teaching and learning will:

  • Identify our shared humanity: Underlying our diversity lays commonality and shared values, aspirations and needs. We value our fundamental similarities and universality
  • Value difference and diversity: We appreciate the richness of our cultural mix and look for ways of celebrating and understanding it better
  • Support interdependence, interaction and influence: We recognise that, as they evolve, distinct cultures, beliefs and lifestyles will impact on and inform each other
  • Promote excellence: We aim to inspire and recognise high personal and collective achievement throughout our community.
  • Use materials which reflect a range of cultural backgrounds, without stereotyping and to promote a positive image of and attitude towards disability and disabled people
  • Promote attitudes and values that will challenge discriminatory behaviour
  • Provide opportunities for children to appreciate their own culture and religions and celebrate the diversity of other cultures
  • Use a range: of sensitive teaching strategies when teaching about different cultural and religious traditions
  • Develop children’ advocacy skills so that they can detect bias, challenge discrimination, leading to justice and equality
  • Ensure that the whole curriculum covers issues of equality and diversity;
  • Seek to involve all parents in supporting their child’s education
  • Provide educational visits: and extended learning opportunities that involve all pupil groups
  • Take account of the performance of all children when planning for future learning and setting challenging targets
  • Make best use of all available resources to support the learning of all groups of children
  • Identify resources and training that support staff development
