Equality Information and Objectives

 

The Governing Body of High Beech C of E Primary School is committed to promoting equality and diversity and eliminating discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Equality Act 2010.

We are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith or religion 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 able to participate fully in school life.

We will tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. At High Beech C of E Primary School we believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here. The achievement of pupils will be monitored by race, gender and disability and we will use this data to support pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching. We do this by:

  • Treating all those within the school community (e.g. pupils, staff, governors, parents and the community) as individuals with their own particular abilities, beliefs, challenges, attitudes, background and experience.
  • Recognising and appreciating individual needs and differences, being a place where children and staff will thrive – physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.
  • Creating and maintaining a Christian school ethos which promotes equality, develops understanding and challenges myths, stereotypes, misconceptions and prejudices.
  • Encouraging everyone in our school community to gain a positive self-image and high self-esteem.
  • Having high expectations for everyone involved within the whole school community.
  • Promoting mutual respect and valuing each other’s similarities and differences and facing equalities issues openly and honestly.
  • Maintaining strong links with Holy Innocents Church, High Beach.
  • Monitoring and reviewing all the above to secure continuous improvement in all we do.
