Equality in all aspects of school life and within our whole school community.
Our equality objectives are:
To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular and extra-curricular opportunities. We aim to meet this objective with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity.
To reduce prejudice and increase understanding of equality through direct teaching across the curriculum.
To move beyond deterministic notions of fixed ability and to model teaching and learning behaviours that avoid labelling.
To ensure there is no gender attainment gap within school, and where gaps exist in specific cohorts to address issues pro-actively.
To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experience, both in and beyond the school.
To eradicate prejudice related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010.
To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities.
Through our curriculum and it's key drivers, we will support and achieve these equality objectives:
At High Ercall Primary School, we believe that our curriculum is designed to inspire, engage and challenge our pupils.
Across the curriculum, across every year group, our key school drivers are to:
- develop life skills through our 5Rs - responsibility, resilience, resourcefulness, reflection, and respect;
- enable the children to engage in active learning and access our outdoor learning environment; and
- show an understanding of diversity – within our community and beyond. Our curriculum is built with consideration of these drivers at the centre, to enable our pupils to develop skills and understanding for later life.
Please see our Single Equality Policy and Equalities Plan, which detail how we meet our public sector duty. It is located within School Information - School Policies - Supporting Additional Needs.
