Hindhayes infant school policy statement on Equality and Community Cohesion
Our school is committed to the development of cohesive communities both within our school's physical boundaries and within our local, national and global environments. Our school embraces the aim of working together with others to improve children's educational and well-being outcomes.
Under the Equality Act 2010 we welcome our general duty to eliminate discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations. We also welcome our specific duties to publish information every year about our school population, to explain how we have due regard for equality, and to publish equality objectives which show how we plan to tackle particular inequalities, and reduce or remove them.
Our Equality Statement:
We believe that a setting rich in diversity is a strength. With a curriculum designed to develop compassion and community we will ensure that all those who learn, teach and visit here are respected, valued and treated with empathy.
Therefore, our Equality Targets are:
- We will aim to diminish attainment differences between children in vulnerable groups such as SEND, Pupil Premium and EAL and those who are not vulnerable.
- Provide access to creative activities and adventurous play for all children, irrespective of age, background and academic achievement.
In addition to this short statement, we also have a full school policy statement on equality and community cohesion. Please access these below.
