4. Eliminating discrimination

Church Langton CE Primary School is aware of its obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and complies with non-discrimination provisions.

Where relevant, our policies include reference to the importance of avoiding discrimination and other prohibited conduct.

Staff and governors are regularly reminded of their responsibilities under the Equality Act, for example during meetings. Where this has been discussed during a meeting it is recorded in the meeting minutes.

Staff receive training about their responsibilities under the Equalities act and reminded about the objectives set out in section 8 annually.

Staff and senior leaders will regularly engage in pupil progress meetings in order to monitor vulnerable groups and ensure equality in expectations and provision.

5. Advancing equality of opportunity

As set out in the DfE guidance on the Equality Act, Church Langton CE Primary School aims to advance equality of opportunity by:

  • Removing or minimising disadvantages suffered by people which are connected to a particular characteristic they have (e.g. pupils with disabilities, or gay pupils who are being subjected to homophobic bullying)
  • Taking steps to meet the particular needs of people who have a particular characteristic (e.g. enabling Muslim pupils to pray at prescribed times)
  • Encouraging people who have a particular characteristic to participate fully in any activities (e.g. encouraging all pupils to be involved in the full range of school teams, clubs and extra- curricular activities)

In fulfilling this aspect of the duty, the school will:

  • Analyse the data to determine strengths and areas for improvement, implement actions in response and publish this information
  • Make evidence available identifying improvements for specific groups (e.g. declines in incidents of homophobic or transphobic bullying)
  • Access information about any issues associated with particular protected characteristics, identifying any issues which could affect our own pupils

6. Fostering good relations

Church Langton CE Primary School aims to foster good relations between those who share a protected characteristic and those who do not share it by:

  • Promoting tolerance, friendship and understanding of a range of religions and cultures through different aspects of our curriculum. This includes teaching in RE, citizenship and personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education, but also activities in other curriculum areas. For example, as part of teaching and learning in English/reading, pupils will be introduced to literature from a range of cultures
  • Holding assemblies dealing with relevant issues. Pupils will be encouraged to take a lead in such assemblies and we will also invite external speakers to contribute
  • Working with our local community. This includes inviting leaders of local faith groups to speak at assemblies, and organising school trips and activities based around the local community
  • Encouraging and implementing initiatives to deal with tensions between different groups of pupils within the school. For example, our school council has representatives from different year groups and is formed of pupils from a range of backgrounds. All pupils are encouraged to participate in the school’s activities, such as sports clubs. We also work with parents to promote knowledge and understanding of different cultures

7. Equality considerations in decision-making

Church Langton CE Primary School ensures it has due regard to equality considerations whenever significant decisions are made.

The school always considers the impact of significant decisions on particular groups. For example, when a school trip or activity is being planned, the school considers whether the trip:

  • Is affected by any religious holidays
  • Is accessible to pupils with disabilities
  • Has equivalent facilities for all children regardless of gender

8. Equality objectives

Objective 1: To continually consider how well the school ensures equality of opportunities for all pupils particularly those with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

Why we have chosen this objective:

We have many pupils who have SEND. These pupils have a range of complex needs including co-occurring medical conditions, ASD, physical disabilities, hearing and vision impairments. 

 To achieve this objective we plan to:

Consider our curriculum offer with our faculties and through development of the MAT Curriculum to ensure that all pupils are included. Ensure that extra-curricular activities and any school trips or special events such as sponsored events are accessible to all. Work closely with the South Leicestershire School Sports Partnership to develop our sport and PE curriculum to ensure all pupils can be included. 

Learn-At curriculum’s mission is that:

“Every child flourishes and enjoys learning with access to a rich, rounded, rigorous and coherent curriculum” and our intrinsic values shared across the trust are:

“Christian values, British values and those essential values common to good, kind and tolerant people of all faiths and no faith”.

Objective 2: To educate our pupils about use of hate speech and the impact this has on others.

Why we have chosen this objective:

This is a pertinent issue in the wider society.

To achieve this objective we plan to:

Use staff training, assemblies and lessons to celebrate difference. Challenge any use of homophobic language and other hate speech with a discussion about why it is wrong and the consequences on others.

Progress we are making towards this objective: assembly rota re- done with opportunities for speakers from the wider community including faith and non faith representatives to come/ remotely join and talk to the children.  Our RE curriculum- Understanding Christianity and the local syllabus and teaching about British Values and character education also allow for open discussion and learning to develop children’s tolerance and understanding of others.

Objective 3: To continue to develop staff’s understanding of equality and its implication on a day to day basis and in this way reduce or remove any inequalities particularly relating to protected characteristics.

Why we have chosen this objective:

Staff training to raise awareness about equality is due.

To achieve this objective we plan to:

Include training about equality and protected characteristics in our CPLD schedule. Review our curriculum offer and extra-curricular activities taking into account protective characteristics.

Progress we are making towards this objective: establishment of new faculty groups who are considering the wider curriculum and all aspects of equality teaching and learning.

9. Monitoring arrangements

The Chair of the governing body and headteacher will update the equality information we publish, at least every year.

This document will be reviewed by governing body and headteacher at least every 4 years to ensure that the objectives are relevant.

This document will be approved by the full governing body.
