Granby Primary School
Ready, Respectful, Safe
At Granby, we welcome our duties under the Equality Act 2010 to show due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination, harrassment and victimisation; advance equality of opportunity between those people who share protected characteristics and those who do not; and foster good relations between different people when carrying out their activitieis to promote community cohesion.
We recognise the nine protected characteristics which are:
Our current equality objectives were reviewed in Spring 2021 and are as follows:
|Short Term Priorities|
|Ensure that parents and carers with visual impairments have equal opportunity to access information from school||Highlight on all school documentation that goes to parents that it is available in larger print on request||Format of documentation altered appropriately||As required|
|Parents with physical disabilities are welcomed into school and their needs are considered at events and visits||When we are aware of needs we will plan sensitively for them. This may include rearranging furniture and planning space appropriately||Parents and carers can be equally involved in school life and their child’s education|
Now achieved for several parents - need to develop and ensure for new parents
|Ensure that the curriculum can be accessed by all children||Ensure that timetables and resources are not a barrier to any individual or group’s access to the curriculum||All children access all aspects of the curriculum||The school reacts to the needs of both adults and children so that the curriculum is accessible|
|Medium Term Priorities|
|Ensure that the school develops children’s awareness of disability|
Ensure that there are learning resources which show positive images of people with disabilities.
Invite people with disabilities into school - not necessarily but possibly to talk about their disability, e.g. Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Include Paralympic and special Olympic sports in the PE curriculum
|Pupils’ awareness and empathy increases|
|Long Term Priorities|
|Access to year 6 classrooms||Work with appropriate specialists to deliver|
