SEN Statement 2022-2023

Our academy is a happy and caring place that children want to attend and where they can feel secure. As educators we create an environment in which children can experience the joy of learning and are valued as important members of the school, within a diverse community that celebrates their similarities and differences.

We recognise that each child is of equal value and that it is our privilege and responsibility to accept each child into our community. Beginning from their first day and throughout their time with us, we have high expectations of all children in order to encourage them to develop their potential to the full.

We believe that every pupil in the academy should be accorded the respect and dignity that is the right of every individual. In all our relationships, we are fair, understanding and compassionate.

We believe that education is a shared responsibility of parents and carers, staff and the community. Parents and carers have a right to expect that what their child needs to know is what they are taught. Through education, all pupils will develop a sense of self-respect and the capacity to live as independent, self-motivated individuals with the ability to function as contributing members of the school community and wider society.

Diversity Statement 2022-2023

At Churchend Primary Academy we realise the importance of ensuring equal opportunity for all children and adults within the diverse community that we serve by promoting equality and tackling all forms of discrimination. All stakeholders will continue to ensure this is an essential element of all academy policies and actions. We strive for all children and adults to become the best possible versions of themselves by recognising and celebrating the uniqueness in each person, and to remove barriers. In our endeavor to achieve this, the academy will:

  • Prepare children for life in a culturally diverse society, where children are confident in understanding their role and responsibilities in the wider world.
  • Ensure our curriculum reflects the diversity of our school and local community.
  • Ensure all school policies and practices explicitly reflect our diverse community.
  • Encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds to apply to work at Churchend Primary Academy, and to encourage BAME staff to further develop their leadership skills.

The right to develop, learn and work in an environment free from discrimination is implicit in our Academy’s ethos and embodied in its mission statement. No member of our academy community shall suffer direct or indirect discrimination on the basis of a protected characteristic.

We are working to eradicate bullying in all its forms.
