Ronald Ross Primary School Statement on Equality and Community Cohesion
Our School is committed to equality both as an employer and a service-provider:
- We aim to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.
- We want to make sure that our school is a safe, secure and stimulating place for everyone.
- We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them all exactly the same.
- We recognise that for some pupils, extra support is needed to help them achieve and be successful.
- We try to ensure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions – eg pupils/parents/school council/governors etc
- We aim to make sure that no one experiences harassment, less favourable treatment or discrimination because of their age; any disability they may have; their ethnicity, colour or national origin; their gender; their religion or beliefs;
We welcome our duty to promote community cohesion as well as the emphasis in the new Ofsted inspection framework that states the importance of narrowing the gaps in achievement, including:
- Pupils from certain cultural and ethnic backgrounds
- Pupils who belong to low-income households and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals
- Pupils who are disabled
- Pupils who have special educational needs
- Boys in certain subjects, and girls in other subjects.
