At Albourne CE Primary School, we are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers irrespective of race, gender, disability, belief, sexual orientation, age or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and ability to participate fully in school life.
We tackle discrimination through the positive promotion of equality, by challenging bullying and stereotypes and by creating an environment which champions respect for all.
We believe that diversity is a strength which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit us.
Equality in Teaching and learning
We provide all our pupils with the opportunity to succeed and to reach the highest level of personal achievement. We do this by:
Ensuring equality of access for all pupils and preparing them for life in a diverse society
Using materials that reflect the diversity of the school, population and local community without stereotyping
Promoting attitudes and values that challenge any discriminatory behaviour or prejudice
Providing opportunities for pupils to appreciate their own culture and celebrate the diversity of other cultures
Seeking to involve all parents in supporting their child’s education
Utilising teaching approaches appropriate for the whole school population which are inclusive and reflective of our pupils.
In order to further support pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching, we
have set the following objectives:-
Objective 1: To monitor and analyse pupil achievement by gender and SEND
and act on any trends or patterns in the data that require additional support for pupils.
Objective 2: To continue to raise levels of attainment in core subjects for vulnerable learners.
Objective 3: To review levels of parental and pupil engagement in learning and school life, across all activities to ensure equity and fairness in access and engagement.
Equal Opportunities for Staff
All staff appointments and promotions are made on the basis of merit and ability and in compliance with the law.
The school has a full and separate Equal Opportunities Policy which can be found in the 'School Policies' section. Please consult this for further details if you wish.
