Ensuring Equality

At Drayton Park, equality is at the heart of our organisation. We believe that all individuals should be treated fairly and equally, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, physical or intellectual ability, religious or cultural background. We aim to foster and promote respect and understanding of our vibrant, diverse community through our curriculum, expectations of behaviour towards each other and special celebrations.


We have high expectations for all children at Drayton Park School, and strive to make sure they all reach their potential and are safe and happy at school. We make adaptations and adjustments to the curriculum and how it is taught to make sure that all children can access learning and achieve.


When planning, teachers set high expectations and provide opportunities for all pupils to achieve, including boys and girls, pupils with special educational needs, pupils from all social and cultural backgrounds, pupils from different ethnic groups including travellers, refugees and asylum seekers, and those from diverse linguistic backgrounds. Teachers are aware that pupils bring to school different experiences, interests and strengths which will influence the way in which they learn. Teachers plan their approaches to teaching and learning so that pupils can take part in lessons fully and effectively.


Governors have identified three key equalities objectives for the school. Overtime, we are working towards achieving these. For information on our actions and progress, please see the document below. It is a section of our School Development Plan, which we update regularly. Our objectives are:

  1. Reduce achievement gaps between disadvantaged pupils and others, and between boys and girls.
  2. Improve pupils’ and parents' understanding and attitudes towards people with a different ethnicity, gender, gender identity, faith, marital status, sexual orientation, age and those with disabilities.
  3. Reduce gaps in parental engagement with school, between parents from different communities
