At Dovedale Primary School all staff and governors are committed to working together to provide a safe, inclusive and nurturing learning environment in which everyone in our school community is enabled to aim high together.
We welcome our duties under the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations in relation to age, disability, ethnicity, gender (including issues of transgender, and of maternity and pregnancy), religion and belief, and sexual identity.
The Willows Academy Trust Equality & Diversity Policy sets out the guiding principles which underpin our commitment to equality and diversity. We ensure that these principles apply to the full range of our policies and day to day practices.
Our Equality Objectives are set out in the WAT Equality Duty Report:
- To narrow the gap between pupils from low/non-income families and those of their peers.
- To ensure curriculum provision meets the needs of all children including those with SEND.
- Protect against prejudice and increase an understanding of equality through direct teaching across the curriculum.
- To ensure all staff, volunteers, governors and directors are aware of current legislation surrounding equality and diversity and understand their responsibilities within this legislation.
Progress against our current objectives are reviewed regularly by governors and published annually as a minimum.
