  • Teaching of equality, diversity and FBV will be evaluated during observations of lessons
  • Current teaching of equality, diversity and FBV will be regularly monitored and audited

Children will demonstrate a strong knowledge and understanding of the fundamental British values, equality and diversity which will be evidenced in the following ways:

  • Diversity, equality and FBVs will be evidenced in displays around school and within the resources carefully selected/produced and used by staff

Diminish the difference between PP and non-PP pupils? attendance by July 2022

  • FSW and SLT to track PP pupils as a focus group
