Equality and Diversity

Our Equality Objectives reflect The Mandeville School's priorities and draw upon available data and other evidence. Careful analysis of this is undertaken in order to ensure that we are working to achieve improved outcomes for different groups.

Equality Objectives

Our equality objectives are:

  1. All students, staff and families feel welcomed and included in the school community

  2. The school academic and pastoral curriculum is diverse and reflects a range of cultures, religions, abilities, sexual identities and genders positively

  3. Students from all backgrounds can achieve results commensurate with their abilities

  4. Over time, the staff body more closely resembles the makeup of the school community - specifically with regards to ethnicity

  5. Equality issues are considered in each school policy and guidance document as it is reviewed and developed in the next academic year.

We also have overarching objectives for the whole school community which include:

  • To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular and extra-curricular opportunities . 
  • To reduce prejudice and increase understanding of equality through our curriculum. 
  • To move beyond deterministic notions of fixed ability and to model teaching and learning behaviours that avoid labelling and take on a belief in ‘growth mindset’. 
  • To eradicate prejudice related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010. 
  • To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities. 
  • To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to gender, homophobia and biphobia, and sexist, sexual and transphobic bullying.
