St. Patrick’s Catholic Primary School
Equality Information and Objectives 2021-2024
St. Patrick’s Catholic School has a firm Catholic ethos which is committed to ensuring fairness, justice and equality of education and opportunities for all pupils, which actively promotes and celebrates diversity. We demonstrate this through our commitment to developing a curriculum and culture of inclusion, diversity, and prioritising the well-being and progress of every child, and making all members of the school community feel welcomed and valued.
The Public Sector Equality Act 2011, provides us with a framework to support the achievement of pupils valuing race, gender, disability, challenging discrimination, harassment and victimisation of all kinds, promoting respectful, healthy relationships between people.
We have high expectations of all and celebrate positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. We address and tackle issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups in school by advancing equal opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
Taking into account the needs of the school, national priorities that have been identified by OFSTED and the priorities for Camden which have been identified by the Education Commission, we have identified 4 equality objectives which we want to accomplish over the next 3 years. We will measure yearly our success in meeting the Public Service Equality Duties by the extent to which we achieve these objectives over the next 3 years and by how much outcomes improve for all priority groups within the school.
Our Equality Objectives for 2021/24 are: Progress Monitoring:
