Equality Objectives

Our equality objectives are:

1. To actively close gaps in attendance between groups of students; especially students eligible for free school meals.

The reason for this objective is:

Overall attendance for pupils eleigible for free school meals has been lower than that of pupils not eligible.  We aim for the attendance rates of pupils eligible for free school meals to improve year-on-year to meet a 90% target by the end of the 2023/24 academic year.

2. To provide role-models for all students, ensuring diversity in the staff body, visiting speakers and in leadership roles

The reason for this objective is:

Our school is situated in rural Shropshire; not a significantly ethnically and culturally diverse area. Whatever the nature of the local community, our students are growing up in a diverse wider society.  We aim to improve knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable pupils to appreciate and value difference and diversity.
