Equality and Diversity

As a Green School Trust school we are committed to:

  • ensuring everyone is treated fairly and with respect
  • promoting equality of opportunity
  • ensuring that our school is safe, secure and a stimulating environment for everyone
  • recognising that all people within our community have different needs, and understand that treating people equally means meeting their needs, not necessarily treating everyone in the same way
  • recognising that for some pupils and staff extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful
  • ensuring that people from different groups are consulted and involved in decisions
  • ensuring that no individual or groups experience any unlawful direct or indirect discrimination, harassment or victimisation 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

Our school EQUALITY OBJECTIVES 2019 -  2020

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish specific and measurable equality objectives.  Our equality objectives are based on our analysis of data and other information. Our equality objectives will focus on those areas where we have agreed to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages. Our equality objectives will focus on expected areas of need in line with national norms until we have progress data

Equality Objective 1: To ensure the  progress gap of SEND students is in line with non-SEND students in English and Maths

Rationale: Students with SEND face more barriers to learning than their non SEND peers

Action: to achieve this objective we plan to:

  1. provide relevant CPL for our teaching and educational support staff
  2. develop trust with, and confidence, in our SEND students through personalised interventions
  3. deploy LSAs to support literacy and numeracy
  4. disseminate information to relevant staff
  5. conduct detailed analysis and testing of additional needs
  6. enable reasonable adjustments to provide access to the full curriculum 

How will measure success?

No more than 2% difference between SEND  students and non - SEND students making expected progress in English and Maths 

Review of 2018 - 2019

Objective met: SEND students were in line and sometimes exceeded the progress of their peers in English and Maths

Equality Objective 2: To narrow the progress gap between Disadvantaged and non-Disadvantaged students.

 

Rationale: Students from disadvantaged backgrounds face more socio economic barriers to learning than their non disadvantaged  peers

Action: to achieve this objective we plan to:

  1. follow our Pupil Premium Strategy
  2. follow our Catch Up Premium Strategy for PP students
  3. adapt our strategy to respond to individual need
  4. pay particular attention to students currently eligible for Free School Meals
  5. monitor achievement through data collections

How will we measure success?

No more than 2% difference between Pupil Premium (PP) students and non - Pupil Premium students making expected progress in English and Maths 

Review of 2018 - 2019

Objective partially met: PP  students were often in line with their peers in  English and Maths. However, overall the gap between students eligible for Free School Meals and their non FSM peers was greater than 2%
