These objectives directly link to the school’s Accessibility Plan (2022 – 2025) and are explained in detail in our Equality Duty document below.
Objective 1: To train all members of staff and governors on SEND, equal opportunities and non-discrimination. Training evaluation data will show that 100% of those attending have a good understanding of the legal requirements.
Objective 2: To ensure that future reviews of all school policies include information about and links to PSED Objective from October 2022.
Objective 3: To embed the new curriculum developed over the past 3 years by adopting a whole-school approach. This will promote inclusion, tolerance, friendship and understanding through different aspects of our curriculum.
