Visions, Ethos, Values and Equality

Our vision and aims for the pupils…

The children will be taught the academic and life skills to be able to achieve their potential in a nurturing Christian environment; with this resilience and courage they will learn to be caring towards others, know that all people should be equal and aim to be custodians of the wider world.

Our quote is taken from our chosen parable, ‘The Good Samaritan’ (Luke 10:27).

 ‘Love other people… as we love ourselves.’

 

Why our parable was chosen for Chelmondiston …

After school pupils visited France on a trip, they found a refugee who stowed away underneath the bus to Chelmondiston. The school children and community then helped get supplies for this refugee and the pupils were interested in why someone would take this risk. In this act of a desperate person the children saw beyond their own needs, the school and Chelmondiston and had a glimpse of the differences and needs of others in the wider world beyond their isolated peninsula home. Through the parable, we teach the pupils that you should look beyond differences to help those in need and strive for equality for all.

The children will be encouraged to remember the school vision and aims through our chosen quote and through the use of ‘The Good Samaritan’ parable and through these key aims which will be displayed throughout the school…

British Values Statement

Equality Objectives

Schools are required to publish information which is updated annually showing how they comply with the Equality Duty and to set at least one equality objective.  The need to advance equality of opportunity is defined in the Equality Act 2010 as having due regard to the need to:

  • Remove or minimise disadvantages
  • Take steps to meet different needs
  • Encourage participation when it is disproportionately low

 

This extends to the following protected characteristics:

  • Race
  • Disability
  • Religion or Belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender reassignment
  • Age (as an employer, not regarding pupils)

 

Our Objectives for 2021-22 are:

  • Equality of opportunity by ensuring that all pupils have access to vocabulary instruction
  • To ensure that the range of texts and resources in school reflects societal cultural diversity
  • To ensure that there is increased participation in sports clubs and after-school clubs by girls to match that of boys
  • To ensure full access to all, regardless of social background, gender, ethnicity or disability, to a high quality provision of SMSC through our curriculum.  (Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural)
