Inclusion > Equalities
At Peasedown St John Primary School 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, sexuality, 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.
The achievement of pupils is monitored by ethnicity, gender, FSM, EAL and SEN and we use this data to support pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching. We will tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. At Peasedown St John Primary School we believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit the school.
Our Equality Plan sets out how we meet our duties under the Equalities Act 2010. The Act makes it unlawful for the responsible body of a school to discriminate against, harass or victimise a pupil or potential pupil:
- in relation to admissions,
- in the way it provides education for pupils,
- in the way it provides pupils access to any benefit, facility or service, or
- by excluding a pupil or subjecting them to any other detriment.
'Pupils’ behaviour is impeccable around school. There is a shared sense of pride with everyone pulling together to be the best they can.'
'The school deals promptly and effectively with any incidents of name-calling or bullying, though these are very few. Incidents are used as learning opportunities to improve what the school does generally, rather than just dealing with those actually involved.'
'Pupils are exceptionally supportive of one another and take pleasure in one another’s success.'
