Aims

  • To promote good relations and understanding amongst groups of different age, race, gender, ability, faith, ethnicity, social condition and cultural background, so that our children are better prepared to live in a diverse and increasingly interdependent society.

Actions

  • Develop an understanding of, and respect for, Christianity, Judaism, Sikhism, Hinduism and Islam by half-termly displays of the different religious artefacts.  These displays to be supplemented by delivering assemblies from the SEAL scheme of work and the PAF collection of assemblies.   In addition, guest speakers will be invited.  We are open to raise awareness of other faiths, particularly if they are represented within our school community
  • Enhance awareness and appreciation of children living in a different culture, by developing links with AFE, our link school in Honduras
  • Organise visits to local places of worship
  • The school has a zero tolerance policy on bullying and any incident related to race, must be reported to Buckinghamshire County Council.

Monitoring and Evaluating

  • Evaluate the curriculum and the educational outcomes with respect to the Equality and Cohesion policy aims.  Our monitoring activities enable us to identify any differences in pupil performance; for instance, children’s knowledge will be assessed before and after a religion is introduced.  This allows us to take into account the understanding of all pupils when planning for future learning and setting challenging targets.

In the November 2014 Ofsted report, it said, ‘Pupils’ excellent opportunities for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development underpin their outstanding learning. They appreciate the value of differing beliefs and are keen to celebrate each other’s successes….The curriculum is rich and varied and provides valuable and meaningful experiences for the pupils, preparing them well for life in modern Britain….Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a real strength of the school. Clear messages about good values are taught in lessons and assemblies. For example, in one assembly, pupils learned to identify and respect signs and symbols used in various faiths.’
