Equality objectives for ICC

All students within vulnerable groups or with SEN have clear and effective learning programmes that demonstrate high level impacts and allow rapid development of core skills

Why we have chosen this objective:

Personalised learning programmes and the rapid development of core skills enable students to make rapid progress and opens up opportunities for future living, learning and employment.

To achieve this objective we plan to:

Ensure schemes of work signpost high quality learning sequences.

Target resources to make the best impact.

Progress we are making towards achieving this objective:

SEN(d) students make the same or better progress compared to non-SEN.

Higher attaining students’ progress has continued to improve.


Closing the gap in terms of target groups, including PP, middle ability boys and students with special educational needs

Why we have chosen this objective:

Gaps that develop at KS3 often continue to grow at KS4 - this can limit future options. Our target groups should make the same or better progress (if intervention is targeted effectively).

To achieve this objective we plan to:

Target resources more effectively particularly for pupil premium and middle ability boys.

Use action research and strategic leadership to plan appropriate and cost effective strategies and intervention.

Progress we are making towards achieving this objective:

SEN(d) students make the same or better progress compared to non-SEN.

Higher attaining students’ progress has continued to improve.


Improving the knowledge, skills and attitudes to ensure all students appreciate the diversity and richness of cultures in today’s society

Why we have chosen this objective:

British culture is important to us all and we strongly believe that to be British means that we should celebrate and appreciate diversity, engage with other cultures and have respect and tolerance for others - regardless of their faith or belief.

To achieve this objective we plan to:

Ensure that SMSC is fully embedded across the curriculum and visible in everything that you see.

Progress we are making towards achieving this objective:

Ofsted highlighted that SMSC, equality and diversity and ethos are strengths of the college.

Ensuring our calendar is organised so that there is a breadth and depth of SMSC experiences for our young people.
