Equality Statement for St John’s CE Primary School

Equality issues remain a priority at St John’s.  Robust monitoring and tracking systems are firmly in place.  Any issues affecting groups of children are identified through termly pupil progress meetings, analysis of attainment levels, progress made at school, year and class level, IPP review meetings and analysis of the behaviour incident records.  Steps needed to address any issues are taken swiftly and thoroughly.  Evidence of this can be found in our Governors, leadership, staff and team meeting minutes, equality policy, behaviour policy, SEN policy and other policies held by the school.

All staff and Governors strive to provide equal opportunities for all, regardless of any difference, making extra provision to enable all to achieve their best in all areas of school life.

Equality Objective

In order to comply with the Equality Act 2010 and the specific duties for schools, we are required to publish our equality objective which is outlined below:


To narrow the gap in the performance of children with Special Educational Needs and those without, in writing.

We will measure this by comparing the average point scores for progress in Writing, from the end of Year 5 and Year 6, for the children with/without SEND in our Year 6 cohort.
