Equality

We aim to provide the highest possible education for all children at Sherwood Primary School. The ethos of our school clearly reflects our commitment to fully including, respecting and supporting all members of our school community whatever their cultural background, belief, gender, race or disability.

We therefore:

  • do our best to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect;  
  • make sure the school is a safe, secure and stimulating place for everyone; 
  • recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them all exactly the same;
  • recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful;
  • do our best to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking with pupils and parents and carers, and through our School Council.
  • there are clear procedures for dealing with prejudice-related bullying and incidents

 

To ensure access for pupils or parents with disabilities, the school has taken steps to improve access to all areas in line with Sherwood Primary School equality, accessibility and inclusion policies.

  • The school was built in 1990 and is fully wheelchair accessible.
  • To ensure all access for pupils and parents with disabilities the school has ensured that most doorways and entrances to the school are on a single level and wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair if necessary.
  • There are accessible parking spaces available for the public and disabled persons and 2x disabled toilets are available for wheelchair users if the need should arise.
  • Information is available on the school website and a community noticeboard in addition to regular newsletters.
  • Furniture is modern and of a suitable height appropriate to the age group of children being taught in that classroom.
  • A Loop system is installed for HI children in the hall/ one class in every year group also has benefit from the specialist equipment.
  • The school has a range of ICT program for pupils with SEND, most recent is the IDL Programme for dyslexia, in addition to IPADs, headphones, netbooks, computers and interactive whiteboards installed in every classroom.
