Equality Objectives

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish one or more specific and measureable equality objectives. We aim to address areas where we need to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantage.

Curridge Primary School is a small, rural school with up to 105 pupils on roll. An imbalance in gender can occur within smaller cohorts. The annual turnover of pupils is slightly greater than average because approximately a quarter of pupils on roll are the children of HM Forces personnel.

With regard to the following objectives, pupils are highlighted within the school’s assessment tracking system and are closely monitored by the Headteacher and the Inclusion Leader. Termly analysis forms the basis of discussion in both Pupil Progress Meetings between the Headteacher and Teaching Staff, and Intervention Pupil Progress Meetings between the Inclusion Leader, Teaching Staff and Support Staff. Identified underachievement results in decisions made as to measures needed to accelerate progress and close any gaps with peers. The Inclusion Governor carries out a termly review of progress made.

Objective 1: To ensure all pupils, regardless of gender, make the necessary progress in line with their peers for the duration of their time in our school.  

Objective 2: To ensure all pupils, regardless of when they joined, make the necessary progress in line with their peers for the duration of their time in our school. The progress of Service pupils, although included in this category, is analysed in regard to accountability attached to Service Premium funding. Every school is required to publish how the Service Premium (and Pupil Premium) is being spent. The Headteacher reports this information to the Governing Body annually.
