Equality Objectives

The equality objectives of Goodmayes Primary School focus on those areas where we have agreed to take action against all forms of inequality and to tackle disadvantage wherever it exists.

We will regularly review the progress we are making to meet our equality objectives.


Equality objective 1: Provide training for all staff and governors on equality and diversity

Ongoing plans to achieve this objective:

Through the CPD timetable for staff there are opportunities to provide training on equality and diversity.  These take place through the areas of safeguarding, anti-bullying and EAL.  Governors attend Local Authority training as and when available.


Equality objective 2: Improve provision for pupils for whom English is an additional language, particularly new arrivals at the early stage of English acquisition

Structures in place to support the implementation of this objective:

New arrivals to the school have an induction meeting with a member of the senior leadership team and are provided with the school’s welcome pack.  In class, teachers will buddy new children with a child/children in the class.  The school has an experienced teacher who will make assessments on the EAL needs of pupils to identify appropriate support or interventions.


Equality objective 3:  Monitor the achievement of pupils from low income and disadvantaged families (FSM)

Ongoing progress we are making on this objective:

During progress meetings with senior leaders and class teachers, the progress of children from low income and disadvantaged families is discussed as priority. Progress is monitored to ensure that the attainment gap is narrowing when compared to all pupils, enabling them to work at least at age related expectations. Support and interventions are set up to help the progress of all pupils receiving this funding.


Equality objective 4: Promote understanding and respect for differences

Ongoing progress we are making on this objective:

In line with the school ethos of Unity, the school curriculum promotes the respect of others so that stakeholders develop an appreciation that we are all different.  Issues are covered through lessons, assemblies and staff training.  The school encourages the promotion of British Values as well as valuing the cultural and religious identities of individuals.
