Equality statement

At Chesterton Primary School and Centre for Children and Families we are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith or religion or socio-economic background.

We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and able to participate fully in school life.

The achievement of pupils will be monitored by race, gender and disability and we will use this data to support pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching. We will tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. At Chesterton Primary School and Centre for Children and Families we believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here.

Equality Target 2017/18

To ensure all pupils within the school have the support they need to access the curriculum and thrive.

This year, we will support this target through:

Ensuring all pupils are provided with same curriculum enrichment , such as educational visits and workshops

Providing a rich, varied, broad and balanced curriculum which aims to educate all about Equality

Providing discrete  teaching of Equality issues throughout a curriculum which has been designed by the school to meet the individual  needs of our pupils

Responding  to incidents of bullying (which includes homophobic and transphobic bullying) in a consistent manner and adapting the curriculum according to the incidents that arise (see Behaviour and Anti-bullying plan)

Talking to our pupils and their parents and carers

 

Progress towards meeting the Equality Target will be reviewed at the end of the academic year and results will be published.
