Equality Objectives

“This single Equality Plan brings together the school’s approach for
promoting equality in our policies and procedures and, most importantly
in our day to day practices and interactions with the whole school
community”

The policy outlines the commitment of the staff, pupils and governors of
Bleasdale School to ensure that equality of opportunity is available to all
members of the school community. For our school this means not simply
treating everybody the same but understanding and tackling the different
barriers which could lead to unequal outcomes for different groups of
pupils in school, whilst celebrating and valuing the achievements and
strengths of all members of the school community. These include:

  • Pupils
  • Staff
  • Parents/carers
  • The governing body
  • Multi-agency staff linked to the school
  • Visitors to school
  • Students on placement

We believe that equality at our school should permeate all aspects of
school life and is the responsibility of every member of the school and
wider community. Every member of the school community should feel
safe, secure, valued and of equal worth.

At Bleasdale school, equality is a key principle for treating all people fairly
and creating a society in which everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their
potential – irrespective of their gender, ethnicity, disability, religion or
belief, sexual orientation, age or any other recognised area of
discrimination.

Our School aims are:

  • To recognise everyone as an individual and respect and value every
    member of our school community
  • To acknowledge and value the role of parents/guardians/ carers as
    educators and to work in partnership with them.
    “Learning Together, Achieving Together”
  • To have high, realistic expectations of our pupils, allowing the maximum
    amount of progress possible.
  • To ensure access for all pupils to an extended, inclusive curriculum,
    including the National Curriculum, designed to meet individual pupil need
  • To celebrate achievement and success.
  • To value the involvement of and contribution by the local and wider
    community.
  • To prepare the pupils for transition throughout their school life and
    beyond.
