Equality Information and Objectives Statement

Our school is committed to equality both as an employer and a service provider:

  • We ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.
  • We want to make sure that our school is a safe, secure and stimulating place for everyone.
  • We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them all exactly the same.
  • We recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful, for example, all those that fall within the protected characteristics.
  • We try to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking to pupils and parents/carers.
  • We aim to make sure that no-one experiences harassment, less favourable treatment or discrimination because of their age; any disability they may have; their ethnicity, colour or national origin; their gender; their gender identity or reassignment; their marital or civil partnership status; being pregnant or having recently had a baby; their religion or beliefs; their sexual identity and orientation.

Equality Objectives for Selling CEP School 2021 – 2025


Objective 1: To ensure school policies and practices acknowledge that some children do not identify the same as their biological sex and to eradicate stereotyping.

Why we have chosen this objective: some organisational practices are not in line with modern times and need refreshing; some children have identified inequality between genders;

To achieve this objective we will: review all organisation practices such as how children are grouped, team races will not reflect gender, positions of responsibility will not reflect gender; make the options for school uniform open to all (move away from division of boys’ and girls’ uniforms)


Objective 2: In an age-appropriate way, promote an awareness and understanding of different types of relationships relating to protected characteristics through our curriculum.

Why we have chosen this objective: As a Church of England School, reflecting the Christian belief that everyone is made in the image of God is central.

To achieve this objective we will: ensure our RSE scheme of work reflects all different types of relationships; through our PSHE provision, educate the children to be respectful and accepting towards those who are different and value our unique characteristics and qualities; ensure the children have access to reading books which reflect all the different types of relationships


Objective 3: Increase the representation of staff from black and minority ethnic communities so that our staff team is reflective of the local area.

Why we have chosen this objective: our school staff are predominately White British (96%). Although the local town of Faversham has 93% White British residents, our local city of Canterbury has 76.5% (2011 census) with a much higher proportion of Asian/Asian British residents (7%) and mixed ethnic groups 2.6%

To achieve this objective we will: advertise online and on social media reaching a wider audience


Objective 4: Ensure our school website is accessible for a wide range of languages enabling parents and carers to access key information about their child’s school.

Why we have chosen this objective: there is an increasing amount of diversity of culture in our school with families new to the UK who have limited English language

To achieve this objective we will: Develop our school website to include translations of key documents and text to ensure it is accessible to parents whose English language is not yet strong.
