Ninian Park Primary School aims to fulfil its legal obligations under the Equality Act 2010. The school aspires to value and treat all people of different faiths and beliefs, cultures, communities and languages, equally.
We recognise and celebrate the fact that British and Welsh society is made up of people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. It is important that the school prepares all pupils to live in such a society. The purpose of our Strategic Equality Plan is to promote equality for people with ‘protected characteristics’, and embed fairness and equality at the heart of our school community and in all aspects of our school plans and policies.
We aim to:
At Ninian Park Primary School we aim to provide a happy, caring environment in which all children can feel confident and able to learn. We seek to foster an environment of mutual respect and support between all staff, pupils, parents and carers and the wider community.
Our school is committed to eliminating any unlawful discrimination on grounds of Race, Gender, Transgender, Religion or Belief, Disability or Sexual Orientation, Pregnancy or Maternity Marriage or Civil Partnership by creating an environment where every individual, regardless of ability or background, is able to participate and is valued fully as a member of the school community. Being opposed to all forms of discrimination and prejudice we promote a positive attitude towards differences and expect respect for people of all backgrounds.
Stereotyped ways of thinking are the result of ignorance and may result in low self-esteem and limited aspirations. The school values and encourages involvement of people from all sections of the local community and through this involvement aims to provide positive images, which challenge stereotyped thinking.
Any language or behaviour which is racist, sexist, homophobic, disablist or potentially damaging to any group will not be tolerated and will be challenged and monitored. Information derived from monitoring will be used to plan whole-school strategies to combat incidents. Information on identity based incidents and bullying will be shared regularly with the LEA to help actions to combat hate crime across the City.
Our 3 priorities for 2016/2017 are :
Priority One: Reduce gaps in attainment and attendance between pupils from protected
Priority Two: Develop the quality and use of our equality information
Priority Three: Teach and train pupils, staff and governors about the Equality Act
