Equality Objectives


We have chosen the following objectives having regard for current legislation and the context of our academy: To ensure that staff and governors are aware of current legislation surrounding equality and diversity and understand the Academy’s responsibility;


  • To promote cultural understanding, awareness and tolerance within our academy communities;
  • To promote mental health awareness and develop appropriate support and interventions as necessary;
  • To close gaps in attainment and achievement between children, especially those eligible for Pupil Premium, children with special educational needs and disabilities, Looked After Children and those from minority ethnic groups;
  • To continue to improve accessibility across the academy site for children, staff and visitors with disabilities,
  • To monitor the use of homophobic, sexist and racist language by students in our academy and support the victims and educate the perpetrators of such incidents appropriately.
  • To continuously review and revise the curriculum so that it represents our diverse culture and society and encourages tolerance and respect of all as made in the image of God; Please also see the KCSP Equality Information and Objectives Policy on our website, together with the Anti-Bullying Policy and the Accessibility Plan.
