Equality Statement and Targets
Shepton Mallet Community Infants’ School & Nursery is committed to equality of opportunity in the way in which it provides education for pupils, in the way in which it affords pupils access to a benefit, facility or service and the way in which the curriculum is delivered.
Shepton Mallet Community Infants’ School & Nursery will strive to ensure that the culture and ethos of the school are such that, all members of the school community will equally value and treat one another with respect and will not treat anyone less favourably on the grounds of a protected equality characteristic. We will foster a culture of respect and dignity, valuing pupil achievements and their uniqueness and recognise the importance of equality of opportunity.
- We will aim to reduce the attainment gap between children with SEND and those who do not have SEND
- We will aim to support EAL children with enhancement of their use of the English language so that they can use improved vocabulary across all areas of learning.
