Equality and Diversity
There are No Outsiders (Our School Ethos)
How we will achieve this ethos
Shared voice and language
Books and reading materials to explore different types of equality, diversity and inclusion in our school Library and our classrooms
Half termly lessons - linked to literature
Praise and sanction
All stakeholders buying into this
Why is this ethos so important?
Our children leave us destined for the workplace, for a role in modern Britain. We want our children to champion inclusion and celebrate diversity. To feel that they never are an outsider and to welcome all that they meet. We believe that no one is born to hate - it is learnt - we need to teach another lesson to spread love and show love.
The public sector equality act duty came into force across Great Britain on April 2011. It means that public bodies have to consider all individuals when carrying out their day to day work with consideration to the following:-
- Shaping policy, in delivering services and in relation to their own employees.
- Due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination
- Advance equality of opportunity
- Foster good relations between different people
Our school's equality and diversity objective for 2023/2024 is:
To ensure all staff are aware of their duties under the Equality Act 2010 and are aware of how to report any discriminatory incidents or practices.
We have chosen this objective:
To ensure our staff understand their duties in relation to good equality practices.
This has been continued from last year as we continue to embed our No Outsiders Programme at the school
We plan to achieve this objective by:
Using staff meeting time to cover the issues in depth.
Embedding a whole school No Outsiders programme.
