Morley Primary is an inclusive school. At Morley Primary we are passionate about ensuring that all pupils, whatever their needs, are given the chance to fulfil their potential. OfSTED said that 'equality of opportunity is one of the foundation stones on which the school's provision is built'.
Staff, pupils and Governors work together to ensure that all pupils feel happy and safe at school, and develop a life-long love of learning. We have high expectations, in standards of work and behaviour, of ourselves as well as the pupils. The school received its fourth Outstanding grading from OfSTED in June 2012, and was ranked amongst the top performing schools in the country in December 2012 and 2015.
In 2011, and again in 2014, pupils, staff, parents and governors worked together to draw up Our School Vision and our School Aims
Discussion at the time included such questions as:
What if you’re not good at…..?
What if you find learning difficult?
What if you’ve got a physical difficulty?
We feel that equal opportunities for all are implicit in these documents and embedded in day to day school practice.
We have identified two explicit areas to be developed
How are we going to develop these areas?
whom do we invite into school?
whom do we visit?
what can we gain from this experience?
what can we offer?
does our curriculum enable pupils to develop an understanding of the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs?
Carefully monitor the progress of our summer born pupils, offering additional support to those who need it.
We are also going to check that all our key policies and documents include explicit information about how we comply with the Equality Act, and support pupils in their development of social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding.
We believe that by doing this each time the policy is reviewed it will help us to focus on what we need to do.
