Equality Objectives

Equality Objectives 2020-2021
 

Objective 1

To improve the attendance of our Pupil Premium children to ensure they have full access to their education and opportunities.

Why we have chosen this objective: Attendance is really important for all our children.

To achieve this objective we plan to: Monitor the attendance of our children half-termly as well as having good communication with our parents.

 

Objective 2

To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experiences, both in and beyond the school.

Why we have chosen this objective: We want to create opportunities for all our children to experience the world around them and raise their understanding of other cultures as well as gain more understanding of their own identity.

To achieve this objective we plan to: Engage with outreach teams to raise cultural awareness as well as celebrating cultural celebration days and considering cultural awareness when choosing books for our literacy / topic lessons.

 

Objective 3

To provide all our children with opportunities to engage in wider opportunities such as music, after-school clubs.

Why we have chosen this objective: We do not want our children who are deemed to be disadvantaged to miss out on the wider opportunities that are available to them based on their parent’s financial status.

To achieve this objective we plan to: Share our Charging and Remissions Policy, reach out to Parents and also use some of the Pupil Premium Fund to ensure that we are able to offer these experiences to our children.

 

Objective 4

To begin the process of becoming a “Rights Respecting School” in order to reduce prejudice, increase our understanding of equality and promote our understanding of the Rights of the Child.

Why we have chosen this objective: We feel that it is really important to inform our children of their rights, giving them a voice and empowering them for their future.

To achieve this objective we plan to: Start the process of working towards the UNICEF accreditation of becoming a Rights Respecting School.

 

Objective 5

To model and teach learning behaviours that avoid labelling whilst developing the sense of identity.

Why we have chosen this objective: We want to foster an understanding of equity, not equality through our school whilst celebrating differences. We want children to understand their own sense of identity no matter what that may look like.

To achieve this objective we plan to: Use resources such as The Culture of The Heart as well as our Trauma Informed Schools practice to help support this understanding.
