Equality Objectives

 

 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
