Objective 1: Undertake an analysis of recruitment data and trends with regard to race, gender and disability by July, and report on this to the Staffing and Finance sub-committee of the governing board.

To achieve this objective we plan to: Ensure that recruitment policies are followed and information on changes to the staffing team are reported termly through the Headteachers’ Report to Governors.
Objective 2: Have in place a reasonable adjustment agreement for all staff with disabilities by July, to meet their needs better and ensure that any disadvantages they experience are addressed.

To achieve this objective we plan to: Meet with staff following any absence or illness to ensure that reasonable adjustments are in place to support their transition back to work following an absence.
Objective 3: Train all members of staff and governors involved in recruitment and selection on equal opportunities and non-discrimination by the beginning of the next academic year.
Why we have chosen this objective: To ensure that all staff involved in recruitment are aware of current legal practices.
