Everyone at Newcroft Primary Academy has an equal right to develop and achieve their potential regardless of race, gender, disability, sexual orientation and religion. Equality of opportunity underpins the school curriculum and the work of the school. The children, staff and governors at Newcroft Primary Academy are treated as individuals with their own abilities, difficulties, attitudes, backgrounds and experiences.
You can find out more about in our Equality Policy.
Each year the school reviews how it will comply with the Public Sector Equality Act and this is reported to Governors. Please find our latest review here.
We teach 'Everyone Belongs' as part of our commitment to promoting equality and diversity in all aspects of school life.
'Everyone Belongs' is a whole school approach that uses resources and a framework to teach children about equality and diversity, in line with British Values, Ofsted guidelines and the Equality Act (2010).
'Everyone Belongs' uses storybooks, lesson plans and assemblies to create and support the development of a whole school community that embraces and celebrates all forms of difference. The school holds detailed plans about how this is taught.
It is important that all children gain an understanding of the world they are growing up in, and learn how to live alongside, and show respect for, a diverse range of people.
The Equality Act 2010, identifies the ‘protected characteristics’ as:
pregnancy and maternity
religion or belief
At Newcroft, we pride ourselves on having a well-considered approach to the teaching of the protected characteristics, in order to:
eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation
advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
The plan below shows how this philosophy is an integral part of school life and is embedded into our curriculum. In addition to this planned approach, we react and respond to any incident as it arises within school, the community or is in the news.
This map shows how we teach and explore the characteristics across the curriculum
