Statement of intent
Our Lady of Muswell Catholic Primary recognises that certain groups in society have historically been disadvantaged because of unlawful discrimination they have faced due to their race, sex, disability, gender reassignment, marriage/civil partnership, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age. This policy will put in place a range of actions to eliminate prejudice, unlawful discrimination and victimisation within the school community and workforce.
Our Lady of Muswell Catholic Primary is an inclusive school where all are welcome. We celebrate diversity and champion equality.
Our Lady of Muswell Catholic Primary School is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout the school community. To achieve this, our equality objectives 2020 - 2023 are as follows:
- monitor changes to the curriculum to ensure they result in good outcomes for pupils in all vulnerable groups, and to review the curriculum considering new performance measures;
- to narrow the pupil premium gap in Reading, Writing and Maths in all year groups;
- continue to explore the use of new technologies to support pupils in all vulnerable groups in accessing their learning.
Equalities and Discrimination, Radicalisation and Extremism
All staff need to have a clear commitment to equalities and adhere to our Equalities policy. Children are explicitly taught that any form of discrimination on grounds of race, religion, sexuality, disability is wrong and there is a zero-tolerance approach. A log of discriminatory incidents is maintained by the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher. All children and staff should be treated with care and respect.
