St George’s Primary School welcomes its duties under the Equality Act 2010. These duties reflect our core aims and values. The relevant polices can be found here.
- Equal Opportunities Policy
- Single Equality Policy
These policies set out our commitment to tackle discrimination whether direct or indirect, individual or institutional and promoting equality of opportunity and good relations across all areas of school activities, including our dealing with parents and the community.
At St George’s Primary School we will continuously strive to ensure that everyone in our school is treated with respect and dignity as reflected in our school vision, values, and motto. The guiding principles in our Single Equality Policy are embedded in our Strategic Plan 2021 - 2023.
Each person in our school will be given fair and equal opportunities to develop their full potential with positive regard to gender, ethnicity, cultural and religious background, age, sexuality or disability.
The school is committed to promoting good relations between persons of different groups and avoiding discrimination whether direct or indirect. The school will actively promote equality, oppose discrimination in all its forms and foster positive attitudes, respect, equality and partnership as we work with pupils, parents, carers and the wider community.
Our Governing Body has specific Governors whose special remit is to monitor Safeguarding, Inclusion and Data. Governors and staff regularly use performance data to monitor pupil achievement and respond to variations between groups of pupils, subjects, key stages, trends over time and comparisons with other schools. This tracking of data specifically impacts the School Development Plan each year.
