Equality at Laureate



Equality Objectives

To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all aspects of life at our schools, both inside and outside the classroom. We aim to meet this objective with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity.

• To reduce prejudice and increase understanding of equality through direct teaching across the curriculum.

• To move beyond and develop a culture of growth mindsets, avoiding labelling of learners based purely on a notion of fixed levels of ability.

• To model teaching and learning behaviours that avoid labelling.

• To narrow the gap between boys’ and girls’ and disadvantaged pupils and other pupils.

• To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experiences, both in and beyond the school through our curriculum.

• To eradicate prejudice related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010 with particular focus on homophobic bullying and prejudice.

• To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities.

Details of how our school is improving equality within our school can be found in Appendix C of our School Development and Improvement Plan. here
