Equality Objectives Statement

Reviewed February 2023


Wigton Moor Primary School is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout our school community. To achieve this, our equality objectives are as follows:


* To monitor the attendance of pupil premium pupils (1 year)

* To develop pupil voice and oracy around equality (2 years)

* To raise awareness of British values and protected characteristics across the school community (4 years)

* To promote the inclusion and cultural diversity of the staff body (4 years)


We will monitor these objectives through:

* monitoring pupil premium attendance data, reaching out to those who may need further support to improve attendance

* including equality in the whole school drive towards greater confidence in oracy

* ensuring the staff and pupils are aware of both British values and the protected characteristics through teaching, training and embedding them across school

* to consider the staffing body and the roles within it, both when recruiting and with existing staff


We are required to demonstrate how we meet the aims of the general public sector equality duty; Equality is a golden thread that is interwoven through all that we do at Wigton Moor Primary School and can be evidenced across across our curriculum, our approach to cultural awareness and inclusion as well as in staff recruitment. As an example the steps being taken to promote equality are included in the following policy documents which can be found on the Policy Page - please note that this list is not exhaustive and you will see evidence of equality across all aspects of our school life, as well as this website:
