The Children's Endeavour Trust and Broke Hall CP School are committed to the principle of equality for all pupils irrespective of race, religion, gender, language, disability or family background, and to the active support of initiatives designed to further this principle. We believe that equality is at the heart of good educational practice. All pupils are of equal value and deserve equal access to every aspect of school life.

All schools within Children’s Endeavour Trust (CET) aim to meet their obligations under the public sector equality duty by having due regard to the need to:

● Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Equality Act 2010

● Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it

● Foster good relations across all characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

At Broke Hall CP School we are aware of the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and understand that it is unlawful to discriminate and treat some people less fairly and to put them at a disadvantage.

Objectives for 2022-2025

In response to analysis of data and their self-evaluation processes, each of the schools in the Trust aim to promote equality, by setting objectives to ensure they are:

● eliminating discrimination

● advancing equality of opportunity

● fostering good relationships

These objectives are integral to building a positive culture and permeate through our schools’ development plans.

As a Trust, we have also chosen to have a set of overarching equality objectives that we will look to achieve over the next three years.

Objective 1: To improve attendance for pupils with social care involvement, disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND.

Success criteria: A year-on-year improvement in the attendance figures for each group.

Objective 2: To eradicate prejudice related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010 with particular focus on racist and homophobic incidents.

Success criteria: A reduction in the number of racist and homophobic incidents, with the eventual eradication of such incidents.

Objective 3: To reduce the gap in performance of our disadvantaged students against non-disadvantaged students nationally at all stages of education (a key focus in light of school closures during the COVID pandemic)

Success criteria: A reduced gap in the attainment measure for each group.

Objective 4: To embed the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Framework within our schools.

Success criteria: All schools will work towards the Gold Rights Respecting Award.

Objective 5: Continue to improve accessibility across school sites for students, staff and visitors with disabilities, including access to specialist teaching areas.

Success criteria: All sites are accessible to students, staff and visitors, with disabilities.
