Equality objectives

New objectives 2020 -2021

They are 4-year objectives. They will be evaluated each year.

Objective 1: To eliminate bias or discrimination due to Mental Health.

Why we have chosen this objective: Significant progress has been made in this area in the last two years, as part of the Mental Health for Schools Award, but we still feel that in our community, there is further work to do and that pupils and their families experience some degree of bias based on mental health difficulties.

To achieve this objective we plan to:

  1. Become a menopause aware organisation.
  2. Introduce wellbeing coaching buddies (for new staff to start with)
  3. Become a trauma sensitive organisation.
  4. Introduce a pupil mental health champion.
  5. Strengthen Year 6 to Year 7 transition – nurture focus.

Objective 2: To eliminate bias or discrimination due to culture or background.

Why we have chosen this objective: Progress has been made in this area, since the introduction of Jigsaw in 2016, but we still feel that in our community, there is further work to do and that some pupils use ‘casual’ comments that are of a discriminatory nature. When audited, school literature lacked a wide range of positive representation of all cultures, that challenged stereotypes.

To achieve this objective we plan to:

  1. Invest in new literature for the school library, ensuring positive representation of a wide range of cultures.
  2. Have a zero-tolerance policy of ‘casual’ comments that are of a discriminatory nature.
  3. Sensitively, yet firmly challenge all stereotypical views expressed.

Objective 3: To eliminate bias or discrimination due to gender

Why we have chosen this objective: Progress has been made in this area, since the introduction of Jigsaw in 2016 and through staff training, but we still feel that in our community, there is further work to do and that some pupils express stereotypical views or language that is discriminatory in nature. When audited, school literature lacked a wide range of positive representation of differing gender roles and the wide range of family types that are representative of our community.

To achieve this objective we plan to:

  1. Invest in new literature for the school library, ensuring positive representation of a wide gender roles and family types.
  2. Have a zero-tolerance policy of ‘casual’ comments that are of a discriminatory nature.
  3. Sensitively, yet firmly challenge all stereotypical views expressed.
  4. Staff and pupils to consider and implement changes to make the school more gender neutral e.g. Sport Day.
