Equality and Accessibility at Thatcham Park School

The School is committed to Equality

We try to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and respectfully.

We want to make sure that our school is a safe and secure place for everyone.

We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them the same.

 Our Aims are to provide:

  1. Full access to the curriculum
  2. Full access to the physical environment
  3. Full access to information 

We aim to make sure that no-one experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination because of:

  • Their age
  • Their disability
  • Their gender identity (they have reassigned or plan to reassign their
  • gender)
  • Their marital or civil partnership status
  • Their being pregnant or having recently had a baby
  • Their race
  • Their sex
  • Their religion or belief
  • Their sexual identity and orientation.

We recognise that some pupils need extra support to help them to achieve and be successful.

We try to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and are involved in our decisions, especially pupils, parents and those of us who can be treated less favourably.

We welcome our duties

  • To promote community cohesion (under the Education and Inspections Act
  • 2006)
  • To eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good
  • relations (under the Equality Act 2010)

We also welcome the emphasis of Ofsted inspections on the importance of accelerating the progress of pupils from groups who are underachieving.

As part of this we will:

  • Publish information every year about our school population
  • Outline how we have due regard for equality and how we promote community
  • cohesion
  • Publish equality objectives to show how we plan to tackle particular
  • inequalities and improve what we do.
