Equality Statement

Equality Statement June 2022 (reviewed annually)

At CCSJ Primary School, we ensure equal opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers irrespective of race, gender, disability, belief, sexual orientation, age or socio-economic background. We are determined 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.

At CCSJ Primary School, we believe that diversity is a strength that should be respected and celebrated by all who learn, teach, and visit us.

Equality Objectives 2022 - 2026

Our Equality Objectives are:

  1. To ensure that all pupils achieve their full potential
  2. To identify barriers to learning and close any gaps in achievement
  3. To promote a deep awareness, understanding and appreciation of the diversity of our local, national and global communities.

We shall achieve these objectives by:

  1. We are maintaining the highest possible expectations of all pupils. We will communicate our ambition by ensuring teaching is consistently of the highest quality, using assessment to inform planning, and rigorously monitoring progress and standards.
  2. Identifying vulnerable groups and individuals and developing teaching and learning tailored to individual needs, thus ensuring good progress is sustained, and achievement gaps can be closed.
  3. We are identifying and exploiting every opportunity in the curriculum and in all the school activities to deepen the appreciation, understanding and respect we promote for diversity.
