At Lordsgate, we seek to value everyone and our school is committed to equality in practice. We welcome and embrace our legal duties to eliminate discrimination and to promote community and equality of opportunity for everybody. The Equality Act 2010 requires the school to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation, and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010

  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic (race, disability, gender, gender re-assignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, religion and belief and sexual orientation) and people who do not share it

  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

The Equality Act brings together previous legislation concerned with race, gender and disability and aims to ensure that:

  • All adults and children treat each other with respect

  • All groups of pupils make at least good progress and that employment practice is fair and does not discriminate

  • Lordsgate Church of England Primary School is a school committed to producing pupils who are good citizens

We have considered how well we currently achieve these aims with regard to protected groups under the Equality Act and we have also involved staff, pupils, parents, and others in the following ways:

  • All staff and children in school have the right to be respected, the right to learn and right to be safe and this is embedded in all aspects of school life.

  • The school has a clear pastoral system; School Council, access to mentoring services, Behaviour for Learning Policy and Procedures

  • Questionnaires to gain feedback from pupils, parents and carers, governors and staff

  • Workshop sessions open to all parents in areas such as reading, phonics, numeracy, and E - safety

  • Ensure pupils with additional needs make at least good progress

  • The school curriculum is designed to enable children to understand and respect diversity

  • Fully integrate our disabled pupils into mainstream and closely monitor their needs to ensure positive outcomes

  • Positive behaviour strategies

  • A building adapted to meet the needs of all its pupils

  • All racist, discriminative incidents are recorded and dealt with sensitively

 

Lordsgate Township Church of England Primary School is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout the school community.

 

To achieve this, our equality objectives are as follows.

 

 

  • To ensure that the progress of girls in Mathematics is in line with that of boys in KS2 (2016 results showed that 79% of boys passed whilst 67% passed KS2 SATs)

     

  • To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experience, both in and beyond the school

     

  • To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities

 

  • To narrow the gap between the attainment of boys and girls in reading at the end of Key Stage 2 – boys are performing better than girls in Yr4, Yr5 and Yr6

     

  • To ensure that all pupils are given similar opportunities with regards to after-school clubs and activities

     

  • To allow equal access to information for all parents

     

  • To ensure the school environment is accessible as possible to all pupils, staff and visitors.
