Soho Parish Primary


The Equality Act 2010                    Last updated: NOVEMBER 2016

Our school is committed to equality both as an employer and a service provider. This is embedded in both our policies and our core values (see below):


We dare to dream.


We believe that there are no limits to our potential.
We persevere.


We listen to and value everyone’s views.
We treat everyone as we would like to be treated.


We recognise we are all unique with individual needs.


We are a warm and welcoming community.

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to develop objectives and to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard for the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and 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.

Our Equality Objective 2018-19

To raise the attainment and accelerate the progress of SEN children across KS2

compliance with tHE equality act 2010

A summary of how we comply with the requirements of the Equality Act can be found here.

A summary of how we are meeting the Accessibility needs of our disabled children is available here.


Over recent years the school has admitted a number of children classed as disabled, some with complex needs including physical disabilities. Nearly all also have much lower-than-average attendance due to medical appointments/hospital visits etc.

Consequently the governors wish to focus on ensuring that we make reasonable accommodation to allow disabled chidlren to access our curriculum as widely as possible.

Why Equality is important to us

Equality for all underpins all of our Soho Parish Values.  It is very important to us that all pupils achieve their potential, regardless of ethnic and social background.  We monitor our pupils and groups very carefully to ensure that no group is underachieving and are proud to write that since 2011 no group has performed significantly below national average in their progress between Year 2 and Year 6.

Furthermore, since 2011  our school overall has significantly outperformed the national average in progress.

How are we achieving our objective ?

Identify SEN children in KS2 and ensure that they are part of focus groups in each class where appropriate.

Staff meeting on Code of practice and introduction of SEN support plans

Use pupil progress meetings to check on the progress of SEN children in KS2.

Targeted booster groups for identified Y6 pupils

Staff training on effective differentiation and high quality teaching

Monitor teaching and learning and outcomes through observations, drop ins and book looks

CPD for support staff on supporting children with varying needs e.g. dyslexia

Range of resources available for staff to borrow, to

supplement classroom equipment, in order to meet specific needs of SEND

In addtion to looking at academic progress, we also look at how effectively our disabled children are able to access our curriculum and whether the measures implemented have had any impact.
