Equality

Our whole school values are re-enforced day to day and through our whole school assemblies.

Our Behaviour and Anti-bullying Policies and our assemblies dealing with relevant situations and involvement with the local communities, enable pupils to address equality issues.

We welcome engagement with all staff members, parents and of course pupils if issues were to arise.

At Brook we recognise that the public sector equality duty has three aims and they are to:

  • eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct under the Act 
  • advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • foster good relations between people who have a shared characteristic and those who do not 

The Leadership Team and Governors at Brook Primary School will annually review how well we achieve these aims with regard to the protected groups under the Equality Act (race, disability, gender, gender re-assignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, religion and belief and sexual orientation.) 

 

Our Equality Objectives

We aim to provide the best education for all at Brook Primary School. The ethos of our school clearly reflects our commitment to fully including, respecting and supporting all members of our school community whatever their cultural background, belief, gender, race or disability.

Our policy and objectives below were set in May 2019 and will therefore be renewed in May 2023.

Having referred to and analysed our equality information we have set ourselves the following objectives:-

Objective 1: To ensure that the curriculum effectively supports the needs of all children, with particular reference to vulnerable groups. Every effort is made to remove barriers to full pupil participation. We ensure that the way in which issues are taught do not subject individuals to discrimination. 

Objective 2: To ensure that there are no differences in progress or confidence due to cultural background, belief, gender, race or disability. 

Objective 3: To provide a balance of gender role models for all children. 

Objective 4:To ensure that in all staff appointments, the best candidate will be appointed, based upon strict professional criteria.
