St. Andrew's CE Primary School - Equalities Information 2017

 

 

We recognise that the public sector equality duty under the Equalities Act 2010 has three primary aims:

  • Eliminating discrimination and other conduct prohibited by the Act

  • Advancing equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not

  • Fostering good relations across all characteristics.

We have considered how well we achieve these aims with regard to the protected groups under the Equality Act 2010 (sex, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity). This document provides equalities information as well as objectives for 2016/17.

 2.   Eliminating Discrimination

 

St Andrew’s has developed a single a Single Equality Policy which brings together all previous policies, schemes and action plans around equality and include all the protected characteristics covered under the Equality Act 2010. This has involved input from key stakeholders.

 

The Headteacher and a governor representative have attended training on the Requirements for Meeting the Equalities Act. The Governing Body has a nominated governor for Equalities.

 

The school monitors any equalities issues through bullying and incidents data. Data is also available from the “Safe at School” pupil survey and our own internal data.

 

3.   Advancing the Equality of Opportunity between Pupils Who Share a Protected Characteristic under the Equalities Act and Those Who Don’t

 

The table below shows how the different learning groups in our school performed in Key Stage 2 SATs in 2017 when compared to those groups on a national basis and compared to the average score of all pupils.

On the whole our learning groups performed well in 2017.  The two most vulnerable scores seen was SEN/LAC.  This group was a very small sample and very data reactive.  Being such a small group it is also dependent on the individual children concerned.  However, we will endeavor to keep a close focus on these groups during 2018.
