Equality Objectives 

 

Objective 1

Staff will feel confident in responding effectively to prejudice-related bullying, as shown in the annual staff survey

Why we have chosen this objective: in line with KCSiE 2022 and the importance of responding to all incidences of child-on-child abuse and incidences of bullying, we will look to ensure that staff are confident in following the policies and procedures to deal with prejudice-related bullying.

To achieve this objective we plan to: implement Anti-Bullying Ambassadors who will support the understanding of all aspects of bullying for all staff and pupils in school.

Progress we are making towards this objective: staff training in September inset day outlines the plans for how we will ensure that the Child Protection Policy supports all children as outlined in KCSiE.

 

Objective 2

Promotion of cultural understanding and awareness of different cultural, ethnic and religious beliefs within and beyond our school community

Why we have chosen this objective: developing the children’s understanding of global issues beyond the school and close community is essential in ensuring that they are prepared to play a role as a global citizen of the future.  

To achieve this objective, we plan to: deliver a high-quality curriculum which celebrates and embraces different beliefs and values from around the globe; this will be supplemented by assembly themes and working towards the British Council’s International Schools Foundation Award.

Progress we are making towards this objective: Link established with 2 international schools (Poland and Spain).

 

Objective 3

Continue to improve accessibility across the school for students, staff and visitors with disabilities, including access to specialist teaching areas

Why we have chosen this objective: post-pandemic, it is essential that all children are supported in ‘catching up’ on learning that has been missed or affected by school closures; it is vitally important that we identify the need to deliver intervention and support for individuals with disabilities.

To achieve this objective, we plan to: continually monitor and review internal (and external where available) information to identify ways to support individual needs.

Progress we are making towards this objective: SEND staff meetings and TA meetings have been scheduled to offer a platform to explore and discuss items linked to this objective.
