In order to further support pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching, we have set the following objectives for 2022-23:-
- To monitor and analyse pupil achievement termly by race, gender and disability and act on any trends or patterns in the data that require additional support for pupils.
- To continue to raise levels of attainment in core subjects for vulnerable learners.
- To strive for high levels of parental and pupil engagement in learning and school life, across all activities to ensure equity and fairness in access and engagement.
- To consult our school community to seek the views of anyone affected by inequality in our decisions to promote equality.
The Brigg Infant School welcomes its duties Equality Act 2010 (including Specific Duties) to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations in relation to age (as appropriate), disability, ethnicity, gender (including issues of transgender, and of maternity and pregnancy), religion and belief, and sexual identity.
