St. Patrick's R.C. Primary School is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout the school community.
To achieve this, our equality objectives from January 2021 are as follows:
Objective 1: Ensure that a consistently good quality of teaching and learning enables pupils, particularly the most disadvantaged, to recover any lost learning, both in school and remotely.
Objective 2: Ensure that the curriculum promotes cultural awareness, reflects diversity, challenges stereotypes and delivers the intent to be ‘ambassadors for change’.
Objective 3: Ensure that pupils’ emotional well-being is prioritised alongside their academic achievement.
Why have we chosen these objectives?
➢ Following the Covid-19 pandemic, school recognises that some of our pupils have been disproportionately disadvantaged due to a lack of access to technology & learning during national lockdown.
➢ Our equality policy needs to impact on the curriculum and our own practice.
➢ Governors, leaders & staff recognise the importance of emotional well-being. Some pupils need additional support with their emotions and well-being if they are to access our curriculum.
These objectives represent the school’s priorities and are the outcome of a careful review and analysis of data and other information. They also take into account national and local priorities and issues.
