Carrington Primary School is a multicultural school; approximately half the pupils are White British and half are from other ethnic groups. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well above average.
Children are able to speak approximately 20 different languages with Arabic and Punjabi being the most widely spoken. The population consists of over 10 different ethnicities and within the last few years there has been an increase in pupils from European countries.
The school population represents many different religions.
The school adheres to statutory equal opportunities procedures when recruiting and promoting staff. The Governors and Senior Leadership Team have responsibility for overseeing and reviewing equality procedures.
Before introducing important new policies the school assesses their potential impact on equality. The school also has rigorous safeguarding policies in place including procedures to tackle bullying in all forms. The school has a clear disability accessibility plan in place.
Our curriculum promotes children’s understanding of equality issues including community cohesion, gender roles, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The school also partakes in anti-bullying week and has a rigourous e-safety curriculum that includes cyber-bullying.
All reasonable adjustments are made to ensure the school’s physical environment is suitable for all students.
At Carrington we use a variety of data sources to track the attainment and progress of all groups of children including, but not limited to, gender, ethnicity and special educational need. Should the school identify an underachieving group of children, additional measures are put in place to enable each child to reach their potential.
