At Littleport Community Primary School, we are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers irrespective of race, gender, disability, belief, sexual orientation, age or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and ability to participate fully in school life. 


We tackle discrimination through the positive promotion of equality, by challenging bullying and stereotypes and by creating an environment which champions respect for all. 


At Littleport Community Primary School, we believe that diversity is a strength which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit us. 


Equality in Teaching and learning

We provide all our pupils with the opportunity to succeed and to reach the highest level of personal achievement. We do this by: 

  • Ensuring equality of access for all pupils and preparing them for life in a diverse society 
  • Using materials that reflect the diversity of the school, population and local community without stereotyping 
  • Promoting attitudes and values that challenge any discriminatory behaviour or prejudice 
  • Providing opportunities for pupils to appreciate their own culture and celebrate the diversity of other cultures 
  • Seeking to involve all parents and carers in supporting their child’s education 
  • Utilising teaching approaches appropriate for the whole school population which are inclusive and reflective of our pupils. 


Equality in Assemblies

We use Picture News assemblies on a weekly basis. These resources are designed to provide opportunities for children to learn from our world and develop respect for the beliefs of others, feelings and faiths. They encourage exploration, discussion, challenge and inspire children to learn. All Picture News assemblies are linked to British Values and protected characteristics.


Equality in Admissions and Exclusions 

Our admissions arrangements are fair and transparent and do not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, religion, belief, disability and/or socio-economic background. 


Equal Opportunities for Staff 

All staff appointments and promotions are made on the basis of merit and ability and in compliance with the law. We are keen to ensure that the staffing of the school reflects the diversity of our community. 


The school has a full and separate equalities policy.  Please consult this for further details if you wish.
