Respect, friendship and trust are our school core values and shapes all we do at St John’s. The school has published various policies which seek to ensure that all children and adults are treated with respect. Our Equality Policy sets out how we fulfil our public duty under the 2010 Equality Act and can be found here.
We have set one objective for the 2021-2025 timescale under our Equality policy which is to:
Ensure that attainment and progress in English for children who are from traveller communities is equal to that of their peers
We review our progress against this objective annually in January each year and our equality policy is reviewed every three years by our governors. The governors and leadership of the school take our equality duty very seriously and recognise the important role we have as a school in educating children to embrace diversity, value difference and enjoy friendship with each other, regardless of their gender, age, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religion. We seek to offer a curriculum which challenges our children to consider how all people have common values despite the different challenges they may face and the diversity of their experiences in life.
