Equality and Diversity

 

At Moorside, we ensure that individuals are treated fairly and equally, no matter their race, gender, age, disability, religion or sexual orientation. Diversity is about recognising and respecting these differences to create an all-inclusive atmosphere.

We create a school ethos and environment where staff and pupils can thrive together and understand that individual characteristics make people unique and not ‘different’ in a negative way.

Our Inclusion Team are working together with Ripon City of Sanctuary, to demonstrate that we promote a culture of welcome for asylum-seekers and refugees both within our area and nationally.  We hope to achieve our School of Sanctuary status during the Summer term 2019 by:

  • Learning about what it means to be seeking sanctuary
  • Taking positive action to embed concepts of welcome, safety and inclusion within the school and wider local community
  • Sharing that vision and the school’s achievements.

We promote equality and diversity by:

  • Setting clear rules in regards to how people should be treated through out Positive Behaviour policy, Anti Bullying policy and Code of Conduct.
  • Challenging any negative attitudes, by consistently following the North Yorkshire Guidelines on reporting prejudice-based incidents.
  • Treating all staff and pupils fairly and equally.
  • Creating an all-inclusive culture for pupils and staff to make valued contributions.
  • Avoiding stereotypes in examples and resources.
  • Using resources with multicultural themes.
  • Actively promoting multiculturalism in lessons and through theme days and weeks, which include teaching children about British Values.
  • Planning lessons that reflect the diversity of the classroom.
  • Ensuring all pupils have equal access to opportunities and participation through carefully planned spending of Pupil Premium funding.
  • Making sure that learning materials do not discriminate against anyone and are adapted where necessary.
  • Using a variety of teaching methods.
  • Using a variety of assessment methods.
  • Ensuring policies and procedures do not discriminate against anyone.
