As is highlighted above, our data tracking and target setting ensures that all ‘groups’ (eg gender, free-school meals, race etc) are examined as a matter of course. Any discrepancies are highlighted and appropriate measures are put into place to minimise and/or improve the academic achievement of any ‘group’ (for example, one-to-one tuition is currently being provided to FSM children to assist in narrowing the gap).

 

3. Fostering good relations across all characteristics - between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it;

 

As highlighted in the schedules above, and particularly within curriculum policies, our thorough work in promoting tolerance, respect and understanding of those people with disabilities, those with differing cultures etc is effective in fostering good relationships.

 

Our work with neighbouring schools, multi-faith approaches, PSHE work and links with schools from other cultures and countries provides the pupils with experiences to help them develop these relationships.
