This policy refers covers both direct and indirect discrimination. All staff working for Primary PPA Cover Ltd do not discriminate against anyone, staff or children, on the grounds of their sex, race, colour, religion, disability, nationality, ethnic or cultural origins.

  • We promote the principles of fairness and justice for all through the education that we provide

Anti-racism

It is the right of all children to receive the best educational provision possible. No form of racism or racist behaviour is tolerated by Primary PPA Cover Ltd and should a racist incident occur action is taken immediately in line with our disciplinary procedure. We endeavour to make our clubs welcoming to all groups, regardless of their ethnic origin.

The role of the PPA Teacher

The PPA Teacher ensures that all pupils are treated fairly, equally and with respect. No child is discriminated against. When planning lessons, PPA staff pay due regard to the sensitivities of all children and do not use material that is against the company’s equal opportunity policy. Teachers will provide material that gives positive images of ethnic minorities and challenge stereotypical images of minority groups. Staff should intervene in a positive way against any incidents of discrimination.

Lesson Plan Management

Sessions are planned with due regard to all school policies including Equal Opportunities. The topics chosen and methods of approaching sensitive issues should reflect this.

Monitoring and Review

Teachers will be monitored and reviewed closely by their Line Managers via termly observations to ensure they are biding by our Equal Opportunities Policy. Staff CPD sessions are ran termly to include Inclusion, First Aid and Safeguarding.

This week we found out that there is going to be additional money put into each and every school! This is money that hasn’t been accounted for and therefore extra. Many schools will now be looking at what and how they can spend this money but at the same time asking if what they want is affordable in the long term? Why put something in place that the children love for it to be taken away again when the funding runs out? Making it sustainable is a must and Primary PPA Cover are able to offer a variety of subjects in line with the national curriculum but with specialist staff. School teachers are already superheroes, let them have their time out of the classroom to plan not worrying about what they are coming back to.
