Current Equality Objectives :


In order to further foster good relations across all characteristics the Governing Board has identified the following objectives:-


Objective 1a: To narrow the gap in attainment between different groups.

How we intend to address this:

Rigorously monitor the progress of all groups, to clearly identify any underachievement in performance and adjust provision to support progress. This objective is monitored by the senior leadership team and key staff alongside the school governing board. 


Objective 1b: To provide additional support for vulnerable children who are at risk of underachieving

How we intend to address this:

Quality First teaching is delivered through staff making adjustments, which ensure that the needs of individuals are met within the classroom. The SENCO works alongside the Teachers and classroom support staff to identify children who require intervention and in class support.


Objective 2: To promote Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development through all appropriate curricular activities, with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity.

How we intend to address this:

Through daily assemblies; these may be whole school, key stage or class assemblies. Through the PHSCE and RE curriculum. By ensuring children have an awareness of different cultures, religions and beliefs through an enriched curriculum.  By ensuring children do not use language offensive to others such as homophobic language and that any concerns are dealt with immediately.


Objective 3: To promote engagement with extra curricular activities amongst disadvantaged groups.

How we intend to address this:

Aston Clinton provides a range of lunchtime and after school activities which meet the needs of this group of children. The Office Administrator and Pupil Premium Lead monitor the attendance at these clubs and compare different groups of children (e.g. FSM/non FSM). This analysis then informs which clubs are offered for the next term.
