On this page you can find all of our equalities information and objectives.
The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard for the need to:
Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
Stocks Green Primary School is an inclusive school where we focus on the well-being and progress of every child and where all members of our community are of equal worth.
We believe that the Equality Act provides a framework to support our commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality and fostering good relationships between people. It also ensures that we continue to tackle the issue of disadvantage and underachievement for different groups.
Our approach to equality is based on the following key principles:
All learners are of equal value.
We recognise and respect difference.
We foster positive attitudes and relationships and a shared sense of cohesion and belonging.
We observe good equalities practice in staff recruitment, retention and development.
We aim to reduce and remove inequalities and barriers that already exist.
We have the highest expectations of all our children and members of our school community.
Number of pupils on roll at the school: 215
Age of pupils: 4 to 11
The Equality Act 2010 protects people from discrimination on the basis of protected characteristics. Every person has several of the protected characteristics, so the Act protects everyone against unfair treatment.
In order to ensure that all pupils are protected from discrimination, the school collects information on protected characteristics.
In addition to pupils with protected characteristics, we gather further information on the following groups of pupils:
Pupils eligible for Free School Meals (FSM)
Pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN)
Pupils with English as an Additional Language (EAL)
Looked after children

Through rigorous tracking and monitoring of individuals and of all the groups of children, including progress and attainment, and by providing equal opportunities to access the curriculum and activities, we aim to ensure that any gap in attainment for pupils within any of the above different groups is removed, or at least remains less than the gap nationally.
