Equality Objectives

  'Working  and Growing Together' and our Equality Objectives

 

 

September 2016 - Fitzwilliam Primary School Equality Objectives from ‘Equality Act 2010’

 From April 2012 all public bodies are required to publish at least one, or more, equality objectives. These equality objectives should be reviewed every 4 years.

Statement

At Fitzwilliam Primary School, we believe that diversity is a strength which should be respected and celebrated by all those who are part of our community. We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all children. Inclusion at Fitzwilliam is about providing equality and excellence in order to promote the highest possible standards and enable all children to achieve their full potential. We aim to recognise and celebrate differences that exist amongst us, that we treat all people fairly and that we strive to eliminate discrimination wherever it might exist.   We ensure that these intentions are known and understood by all staff and governors and wherever appropriate to all children and parents.  

The principles underlying this statement:  

Discrimination on the basis of colour, origin, gender, ability, religious or political belief is unacceptable in this school.  All members of the school community will ensure that school is a happy and caring environment and where respect for and appreciation of each other as individuals is a priority. Our primary focus is to educate, develop and prepare all our children for life in a diverse society

 Equality Act 2010

 The Equality Act 2010 consolidates all previous equality legislation and all staff and leaders are fully responsible and committed to meet the requirements of this legislation.

 Examples of how this will be achieved:

 Ensure all our practice and procedures are fair, non-discriminatory and do not put others at a disadvantage

Ensure all reasonable steps are taken to see that all staff’s actions and behaviours are non-discriminatory)

  • Ensure that equal opportunity is at the heart of everything we do to enable all children succeed and achieve.

 

Fitzwilliam Primary School Equality Objectives

 In September 2016 the Governing Body of Fitzwilliam Primary School have agreed upon the following equality objectives. These objectives will be monitored and progress evaluated annually. The objectives will be reviewed in July 2020 in line with statutory guidance.

Equality Objective

Rationale

To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular opportunities, with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity.

The school population and community is primarily all white British and does not reflect the cultural diversity within Britain. School must ensure that all children experience a diversity in order to fully understand equality.

To diminish differences between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils, particularly boys, in reading, writing and maths.

School data both internal and end of Key Stage 2 indicates that disadvantaged pupils perform less well and make less progress than non-disadvantaged pupils. School must develop new strategies in order to diminish differences between the two groups.
