Equal Opportunities

Cholsey School is fully committed to the principles of the Disability Discrimination Act, Equal Opportunities legislation, and the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000. We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity; promoting good relations between members of different racial, national, cultural, and religious groups and communities; and to eliminating unlawful discrimination.

The school is opposed to all forms of racism and xenophobia, including those forms that are directed towards religious groups and communities, including travellers. School policies supporting these views can be obtained from the school office. You may be asked for personal data for use for monitoring purposes under this legislation.

Special Educational Needs
Special educational needs are those which may deny children maximum access to the curriculum and extra-curricular activities in school. These constraints may be either one or a combination of the following: physical, social, emotional, behavioural, sensory or intellectual.  We value all children as individuals and they are all entitled to a broad, balanced and relevant education.

We, as a school community, are fully committed to inclusion and make every effort to welcome and accommodate all children.

We aim to identify any problems as early as possible so that the appropriate strategies may be put in place.  If you have any worries about your child, please speak to the class teacher.

The school is supported by and has access to a wide network of specialist teachers and other professionals who can be called upon to help individual needs when children need it.

Pupil Premium

The government introduced Pupil Premium in 2011-12. Schools are free to spend Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

From September 2012, we have also been required to publish online information about how we have used the premium. Click the link above to see how we have allocated this funding.

Measuring the impact of the Pupil Premium Grant:

All eligible children made good progress in English and Maths last year with the many reaching the standards expected in end of year assessments. Just as importantly, children have benefited greatly from the pastoral support on offer with improved attendance and punctuality along with better self-esteem and self-image.
