The Equality Act 2010 requires schools to publish specific and measurable equality objectives.
We believe that children need to be supported to develop a deep and meaningful understanding of ‘real equality’ and to do this there needs to be a whole school focus on developing awareness and empathy of the lives and experiences of others. Each year we choose an objective to work on which will move the whole school consciousness forward.
In making our selection each year we look at trends and patterns in behaviour, opportunities open to children in their normal day to day life and things that have arisen through the changing face of the world year on year.
Equality Objective 2019-20:
Identify opportunities in the Assembly and the wider curriculum to look at other cultures/countries, study famous people from ethnic minorities to begin a wider discussion about the values of individuals.
