Equality at Southroyd
Fair isn't everybody getting the same . Fair is everybody getting what they need
As a co-operative school equality is one of our key values. You can find out more from referring to this link or reading on some of the details of our Equality Policy.
School Council and class council reviewed our understanding of what equality means to us at Southroyd. We also talked about whether we could do more in school to ensure fairness and equality.
At Southroyd we use Assemblies and Big Talk to review aspects of our PSHCE curriculum, themes of equality, diversity and social justice, like in the example above.
SINGLE EQUALITY PLAN
We are a co-operative school and equality and equity are 2 of our stated values that underpin all aspects of school life for adults and children alike. We believe in every child performing to their full potential and strongly believe that pupils should take an active role in a relevant and real curriculum, with meaningful and continuous involvement in school council and decision making within the school.
WHAT IS EQUALITY?
In May 2019 we asked our Class Councils to discuss what equality means to them. This followed a series of assemblies and MindMate lessons to explore equality and stereotypes.
For Autism Week, we have shared pen portraits of 3 Autism Heroes:
In our Spring work in 2019, we asked our children if there was anything else we could do to ensure fairness and equality at Southroyd. They felt we were doing a good job but the queueing system for lunches wasn't fair, which we've changed since. The children also queried their lunch options leading us to publish some of the recipes used in our school dinners for our packed lunch children to copy!
