Posts are advertised and all applicants are judged against explicit and fair criteria. Applicants are welcomed from all backgrounds and we aim for staffing to represent the diversity of the community.

 

To narrow gaps in attainment and achievement between different groups

To narrow any gaps in attainment and progress that have arisen between groups of pupils within the school’s community by ensuring that all groups and individuals have their needs fully met in order to achieve their full potential, and to make good progress or better
