Equality of Opportunity
Our Equalities Statement
At Wilbury Junior School we are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity in line with the Equalities Act of October 2010. We seek to demonstrate this through all aspects of school life and in particular through our commitment to every child fulfilling their potential. This commitment applies to our work in the classroom, our pupil support systems, our recruitment and retention of staff and our work in the local and wider community.
As a school we work hard to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to achieve the very best they are capable of and we will also guide parents on how they can support their child’s achievement. Where pupils experience barriers to their success we will work with them to address these in a sensitive and sympathetic way.
Through our work in the classroom we will ensure that pupils understand the importance of equality, what forms discrimination can take and the impact discrimination can have. We will also seek to foster within our pupils their own commitment to promoting equality. We are committed to improving the knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable our pupils to appreciate and value difference and diversity. We recognise that this is particularly critical for us as our local community has only limited racial and religious diversity.
