Equal Opportunities for All

Educational Opportunity for All

Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre is committed to Building Brighter Futures for our students, our staff and our community. This commitment includes targeted action to address inequality and ensure disadvantaged groups are proactively supported to access the educational opportunities we offer.

We are working towards six Equality Objectives:

1.  To narrow the gap in achievement in English and Maths for disadvantaged students, and for those students identified as having barriers to their learning.

2.  To improve the performance of all ability students but in particular High Attaining, including High Attaining disadvantaged and SEND students across the curriculum so that targets are met or exceeded.

3.  To increase the uptake of enrichment activities by all groups of students, including disadvantaged students and students identified as having barriers to their learning, through the tracking of student participation in school activities.

4.  To improve the attendance rates and reduce the persistent absence of all students and in particular certain key groups of students in the school.

5. Diverse Workforce – The academy takes pride in offering equality of opportunities for all staff.

6. We carefully consider and analyse the impact of school policies on equality and the possible implications for students and staff with protected characteristics, as part of our commitment to meet the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) requirement to have due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations.
