Equality Objectives 2017-2020

1 Advance the Equality and Diversity Agenda through staff training: regular sessions including CPD days and weeks; induction; equality and diversity events throughout the academic year.

  • A target of 100% staff completion for Equality and Diversity training has been set.
  • This will be evidenced by staff training records and event reports.

2. Identify any achievement gaps associated with gender and ethnicity and reduce the gap by 5% year on year.

  • Evidence of this will be in Equality and Diversity Reports.

3. Recruit and retain governors and staff who reflect the student population with regard to ethnicity.

  • Evidence of this will be Self-Assessment reports.
