Equality Objectives

Whinney Banks Primary is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout the school community.

To achieve this, our equality objectives are as follows:

  • Ensure quality of access for all pupils and prepare them for life in a diverse society.
  • Use materials that reflect a range of cultural backgrounds without stereotyping.
  • Promote attitudes and values that will challenge discriminatory behaviour
  • Provide opportunity for pupils to appreciate their own culture and religions and celebrate the diversity of other cultures.
  • Use a range of sensitive teaching strategies when teaching about different cultural and religious traditions.
  • Develop pupils advocacy skills so that they can detect bias, challenge discrimination, leading to justice and advocacy.
  • Ensure that the PSHE and Citizenship curriculum cover issues of equalities, diversity, religion, human rights and inclusion.
  • Ensure the school environment is accessible as possible to all pupils, staff and visitors.

Although, as a school, Whinney Banks Primary cannot eradicate inequalities in society, we will endeavour to provide genuine equality of educational opportunity and experience in all aspects of its activities with all stakeholders.
