Equality Statement

Victoria Road Primary School is an inclusive school where we focus on the well-being and progress of every child in a community where all members are of equal worth. The Equality Act provides a framework to support our commitment to promoting equality and diversity and to tackling issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups.

The Equality Act 2010 requires schools to publish information to demonstrate that we have due regard for the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct 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 between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.


Protected Characteristics and other Groups

n order to ensure that all children are protected from discrimination, the school collects information on protected characteristics (sex, race, disability, religion and belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity) as well as monitoring the following groups of pupils:

  • Pupils eligible for Free School Meals and/or Pupil Premium
  • Pupils with Special Educational Needs
  • Pupils with English as an Additional Language
  • Young Carers
  • Looked After Children
  • Other vulnerable groups


Through tracking and monitoring of individuals and groups, and by providing equal opportunities and access to the curriculum and activities, we aim to ensure that any gap in attainment for pupils within any of the above groups is removed, or at least remains less than the gap nationally.

We eliminate discrimination by:


  • Adhering to the Equality Policy
  • Adopting a School Behaviour Policy which enables all children to feel safe
  • Adopting an Anti-Bullying Policy to ensure that children know that any prejudicial bullying is addressed
  • Reporting, responding to and monitoring all prejudice related incidents
  • Regularly monitoring the curriculum to ensure that it promotes respect for diversity and challenges negative stereotyping
  • Ensuring teaching is consistently good so that all children can reach their potential
  • Ensuring all children have opportunity to access extra-curricular provision
We advance equality of opportunity by:
  • Identifying underachieving children and plan targeted support and interventions
  • Ensuring participation of the whole school community in school improvement and development
  • Ensuring that children’s views and experiences are listened to inform our policies and procedures
We foster good relations by:


  • Ensuring that Victoria Road Primary School is actively involved in the local community.
  • Ensuring that Equality and Diversity are embedded in the whole curriculum
