SWA Equality objectives

Objective 1: Actively close gaps in attainment and achievement between students and all groups of students; especially boys, students eligible for free-school meals, students with special educational needs and disabilities, looked after children and students from minority ethnic groups
Why we have chosen this objective: We believe that the greatest way to bring about equality of opportunity is through equality of education

Progress: The gap in attainment for students eligible for the pupil premium has closed substantially in recent years. SEND is a current whole school priority.

Objective 2: Promotion of cultural understanding, awareness and respect of different religious beliefs between different ethnic groups within our school community.
Why we have chosen this objective: We believe that by promoting understanding, awareness and respect amongst our pupils, we equip them to promote those values amongst the wider community and amongst their future communities

Progress:  We cover this area in our PSHE curriculum. We are expanding this objective to include the LGBTQI community and have applied to become a Stonewall School

Objective 3: Continue to improve accessibility across the school for students, staff and visitors with disabilities, including access to specialist teaching areas.
Why we have chosen this objective: We want our school community to welcome everyone and our site to be accessible to everyone, regardless of physical ability

Progress: Our new building have been adapted to be accessible for students with visual impairment. All of our teaching spaces are wheelchair accessible.
