Equalities Objectives

The following statements are the agreed AET Equalities Objectives:

  • To close the gap between boys and girls in English, Mathematics and Science at all key stages.
  • To close the gap in performance of all pupils with special educational needs or disabilities.
  • To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experiences both in and beyond the curriculum.
  • To prevent and respond to all hate incidents and prejudice-based bullying.

At NRA all staff have been made fully aware of the contents of the AET Equalities Policy which covers the Equalities Act 2010.  This has been achieved by an electronic policy being emailed to all staff.  Any issues arising from this policy are referred in the first instance to the HR Manager.

New Rickstones Academy Assemblies

Each year group has one assembly per week. This is led by the Head of Year and covers the theme for the week. Guest speakers will also lead Assemblies covering issues such as careers, volunteering and faith-based topics.  Attendance is highlighted in each assembly, as well as other notable student achievements.

New Rickstones Academy has adopted Discipline with Dignity as the ethos and strategy for behaviour management within the academy.
