At Amington Heath Primary and Nursery School we welcome our duties under the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations in relation to race, disability, sex (gender), age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy, maternity and gender reassignment. We welcome our duty under the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to promote community cohesion. We recognise that these duties reflect international human rights standards as expressed in the UN Convention on the rights of the Child, the UN Convention on the Rights of the People with Disabilities, and the Human Rights Act 1998.
Our Objectives for September 2014 to July 2015 are:
1. Further develop strategies to identify vulnerable learners and understand their needs, targeting provision to meet these.
2. Audit reading levels across the school so as to identify intervention for the comprehension of reading. Ensure all groups at risk of under achievement are identified quickly particularly focussing on the group of pupil premium, Ever 6 or vulnerable groups.
3. Increase writing opportunities within the curriculum. Develop approaches to inspire boys in writing.
4. Support pupils with awareness of e-safety, bullying, homophobic bullying and racism.
