Equality at Springfield

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish one or more specific and measurable equality objective. We aim to address areas where we need to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages.  We will regularly review the progress we are making to meet our equality objectives.

Equality Objectives 2016 – 2020

  • To close the attainment gap between boys' and girls' writing in EYFS, KS1 and KS2
  • To monitor children according to their term of birth to ensure gaps in achievement narrow for summer term children
  • To monitor and promote access of all diversity groups to school enrichment activities
  • To ensure that the achievement of all vulnerable groups is tracked by staff so that they are confident to discuss and have ownership of progress.
  • To ensure the gap between vulnerable groups of children diminishes in line with national expectations and results.

Current Practice:

  • The progress of all children is monitored and assessment results collated and entered onto the tracking system.
  • At the termly pupil review meeting the progress of every child is discussed and issues related to gender are discussed. There is an expectation that all children will achieve national standards at the end of KS2.
  • The school uses ASP, Nexus, Our internal data and the West Berkshire Tracking girds to identify vulnerable individuals or groups and action plans are in place to accelerate progress.
  • Gender results are collated into a specific sub set and all data passed to the Head teacher.
  • Reports linked to the term of birth are also collated and passed to the Head teacher.
  • Teachers are responsible for providing evidence of progress in termly meetings for each of the vulnerable groups.
  • The Deputy Head and Head teacher will discuss results and formulate next steps in liaison with coordinators.
  • The PE coordinators will be responsible for monitoring access to extracurricular activities.

Responsible for such a change: As of November 2019

  • Class teachers will be responsible for providing termly assessments to ensure progress
  • Class teachers will be responsible for ensuring interventions suggested by all of the professionals are carried out regularly, with the support of the Inclusion manager
  • The Head and Inclusion manager are responsible for the discussion of results and progress.
  • Coordinators are responsible for developing action plans to address issues linked to gender and age.

This information and our objectives will be reviewed by the Governing Body at the Welfare Committee. Outcomes will be fed back at the FGB meetings.
