Carlton Digby School Equality Objectives

2017 - 2018

  1. To ensure that any gap in attainment between different groups is not significant

There is rigorous monitoring of the progress of all groups, to clearly identify any underachievement in performance and adjust provision to support progress. This objective is monitored by the senior leadership team and key staff alongside the school governing body.

  1. To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular activities, with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity

Through assemblies, group activities and the PHSCE curriculum. Pupils are given an awareness of different cultures, religions and beliefs through an enriched curriculum. Pupils take part in curriculum themes days and weeks. Ensuring pupils do not use homophobic, sexist or racist language and that any incidents are dealt with immediately.

  1. To ensure that pupils are punctual and attend school consistently

Registers are checked regularly and where there is concern the school will work with the family and necessary agencies to help attendance improve. A new electronic system within school will make this process more efficient.

  1. To ensure that teachers in school differentiate activities in order that individual pupils can achieve their full potential

Through the whole school quality assurance of teaching and learning, completed by senior leaders and subject leaders.

  1. To provide additional support for disadvantaged pupils through the effective use of the pupil premium funding

Targeted and effective use of the pupil premium funding and other additional funding sources (Year 7 grant and Primary PE grant). Closely monitored by the senior leadership team and governors.

  1. To ensure fair access to off-site activities, regardless of SEND

The school provides access to a wide range of suitable off-site activities for all pupils to access, as deemed appropriate to their SEND. Class teachers are aware of and arrange these visits to ensure fair access is available for all pupils.
