Equality of Duty
The Governing Body of My Schools Together, on behalf of Mather Street Primary School and Yew Tree Community School, is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all members of the federation's community.
Priorities for 2022/3
We continue to promote equality of opportunity for all staff and job applicants. Members of the teaching staff have regular access to CPD to ensure they have the knowledge and skills to deliver quality lessons. We are developing the CPD offer for teaching assistants so that they have the opportunity to develop their skills as well.
Covid-19 has meant that the education of all children has been disrupted. We have built a programme of ‘catch-up’ into the federation’s curriculum offer. In addition, we have provided holiday and weekend classes, additional homework and guidance for parents to support with home learning.
We are promoting cultural development and an understanding of equality by providing a rich range of experiences through direct teaching and incidental opportunities across the curriculum. We will identify and share good practice so that we continue to reduce barriers and inequalities across the federation.
Objectives for 2022/3
- Ensure that the curriculum is adapted to meet the individual needs of children with SEND.
- Provide support for families that are new to England so that all children are able to participate in extra-curricular activities and special events.
- Where there are significant differences between the achievement of girls and boys, ensure that appropriate interventions are put in place to close the gaps.
