The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish specific and measurable equality objectives. Our equality objectives are based on our analysis of data and other information. Our equality objectives focus on those areas where we have agreed to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages. We will regularly review the progress we are making to meet our equality objectives.
Our Equality Objectives are:
- To ensure that all learners including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities make expected progress, narrowing gaps in achievement where they exist.
- To narrow the gap in attainment in writing between boys’ and girls’ and pupils from low income/non low-income families.
- To narrow the gap in attendance for pupils with protected characteristics by fostering good relationships with parents and carers and seeking to understand the barriers to good attendance.
- To ensure that the staff and Academy Committee are aware of current legislation surrounding Equality, Diversity and Disability and their responsibilities.
