Everyone at Durrington Infant and Junior Schools takes our legal duties on equality seriously, and we follow the general duties under the Equality Act 2010.

We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, medical condition, attainment and background.
The school will ensure that all children have access to a balanced and broadly based curriculum, which is flexible enough to ensure that every child’s needs are met, so that they can be fully included in all aspects of school life. Find out more.
Each year the school will examine its attendance figures and set attendance/absence targets. These will reflect both national and local attendance targets.
The school will review its systems for improving attendance at regular intervals to ensure that it is achieving its set goals.
This policy will contain within it the procedures that the school will use to meet its attendance targets. View the full policy here.
In the world around them children see many different examples of how people behave. We have a responsibility to help children understand that they have choices about how to behave and help them develop the strategies to make appropriate choices.
Our aim at Durrington Infant and Junior Schools is to create an environment where children feel valued, safe and motivated to learn. We believe that good
behaviour and discipline are the foundation of all learning, and without a calm, orderly atmosphere effective teaching and learning cannot take place.

The Co-Headteachers and Governing Body recognise the value of providing a wide range of experiences to enrich and extend pupil’s learning and to contribute to their personal development. The Co-Headteachers and Governing Body aims to promote and provide such experiences for pupils of the school, both as part of a broad and balanced curriculum and as additional optional activities.
However, many of these activities have an associated cost and cannot be provided unless voluntary contributions are received or parents are charged for the cost.
This policy will set out the circumstances in which charges will or will not be made for school activities and when charges may be waived in order to ensure that all pupils have an equal opportunity to benefit from school visits, curricular and extra-curricular activities. Find out more.
At Durrington Infant and Junior Schools we want your child to do well and be happy. We recognise that you as a parent or carer play an important part in making this happen. Therefore we will aim to provide as many opportunities to keep you informed and involved in your child’s progress as we can. This means that we can deal with questions and concerns quickly and helpfully.
We do however recognise that there are times when things go wrong, when concerns and differences of opinion can develop. These can usually be resolved by speaking to the right person.
This policy statement sets out our approach to dealing with concerns and complaints. View it here.

At Durrington Infant and Junior Schools, we like to consider that it is a place for everyone to succeed and thrive. Our priority is focussed on ‘narrowing the gap’ between disadvantaged children and non-disadvantaged children and ensuring that progress is sustained.
The purpose of this policy is to inform staff, parents, volunteers and governors about the school's responsibilities for safeguarding children and to enable everyone to have a clear understanding of how these responsibilities should be carried out. Find out more.

Durrington Nursery and Durrington Infant and Junior Schools, including the SSC, are committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to
all the children in our local area. We believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs and disabilities have
a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of
life. See our full policy.
