In line with the Equality Act 2010, Cooper and Jordan Church of England Primary School is committed to meeting its public sector duties and acknowledges that we have a statutory duty to:

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
  • Promote equality of access and opportunity within our school and within our wider community.
  • Promote positive attitudes to difference and good relationships between people with different backgrounds, genders, cultures, faiths, abilities and ethnic origins.

To achieve this, our equality objectives are as follows:

  • To promote cultural development and understanding via a rich range of experiences, both in and beyond daily school-life.
  • To ensure sufficient opportunities exist within the school curriculum to address issues of equality.
  • To effectively support children to enable all children to make progress, including those in vulnerable groups.
  • To monitor and respond in to any issues that arise where prejudice is considered to be a contributing factor.
  • To ensure the school environment is as accessible as possible to pupils, staff and visitors to the school.
  • To monitor bullying and harassment of pupils and staff by race, disability and gender, and is this information used to make a difference to the experience of other pupils.
  • To ensure that all pupils are given similar opportunities with regards to clubs, visits and experiences.
