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.
