The Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) requires all schools to publish specific and measurable equality objectives. Our equality objective is based on our analysis of data and other information. Our equality objectives focus on those areas where we have agreed to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages. We will regularly review the progress we are making to meet our equality objectives.
Equality Objective 1
To ensure that our school community understands that we live in a diverse country that recognises, celebrates and tolerates different views, faiths and cultures.
To achieve this objective we plan to:
- Develop a progressive PSHE Curriculum that is progressive and built around three core themes of health and well being, relationships and living in the wider world.
- Teaching and Learning throughout the curriculum promotes discussion and debate
- Train staff in equality and inclusion practice
- Resource the school with stories from other cultures and ensure that children’s home lives and familiar things are represented in school activities such as home corners and imaginative play
- Promote the fundamental British values of Democracy, the Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
- Ensure that our school prepares pupils positively for life in Modern Britain
- Promote self-responsibility, respect and tolerance for others as part of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
- Ensure that pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development equips them to be thoughtful, caring and active citizens in school and in the wider community
- Develop pupils’ advocacy skills so that they can detect bias, challenge discrimination, leading to justice and advocacy
- Celebrate festivals and learn about the wider cultural aspects of others’ lives
- Encourage visitors and speakers into school from other religions and cultures through our World Faith Days.
