Equalities & Additional Intervention

Addey and Stanhope aims to ensure that there are no gaps in attainment and progress between groups of pupils.

Our equality objectives focus on the following pupil characteristics:

  • SEND pupils
  •  Pupil Premium pupils
  • Children Looked After
  • Pupils with Low Prior Attainment
  • EAL pupils

And the following ethnic groups:

  • White British
  • Black Caribbean
  • Black African


The School Improvement Plan sets out targets for groups of students that are underperforming across all subjects. 

In addition, we aim to:

  • Increase the extent to which all pupils, including in particular those with protected characteristics as defined by the Equality Act, feel valued and confident, and in consequence more likely to achieve their potential.
  • Promote cultural understanding between different ethnic groups within our school community
  • Increase the level of pupil voice by ensuring that our school council  includes a fair representation of all pupils in school;
  • Ensure that all pupils, especially PP pupils have access to and participate in out of school clubs and activities.
  • Promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experiences both in and beyond the school;
  • Reduce the number of permanent exclusions who are SEND and White British.
