Equality Information

The Equality Act 2010 ensures protection from discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of specific characteristics (referred to in legislation as “protected” characteristics).

For schools this means that it is unlawful to discriminate against pupils or treat them less favourably because of their gender, race, disability, religion or belief, gender reassignment and sexual orientation.

Haughton Academy complies with the Public Sector Equality Duty and we work to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advance equality of opportunity between different groups
  • Foster good relations between different groups
  • Publish information to show how we comply with the Equality Duty (we do this through the Trust’s Equality and Diversity Objectives Statement)
  • Publish equality objectives which are specific and measurable

Further information on our equality objectives can be found on the Policies and Procedures page on the EVAT website.

Safeguarding

We aim to provide a learning environment where pupils are secure, valued and feel confident to talk about the issues they face in the knowledge that they will be listened to.

We take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously and the following staff are our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL); or our Deputy DSL/support DSLs:

Safeguarding concerns should be reported to Mr P Dickson in the first instance, or (if unavailable) to Mrs J Gregg or Ms L Wilson.

You can contact our DSLs on 01325 254000.

We also work in partnership Darlington Borough Council, the NHS and the Police as well as other agencies to support our young people. You can read about EVAT’s approach to safeguarding on the EVAT Safeguarding webpage.

Pupil and Catch-up Premium

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding that the Government gives to schools for each pupil on roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the last 6 years, those who are or have been looked after by the local authority and children who have parents in the armed forces.

The amount given to the school varies each year, but it can range from £300 to £1900. It must be spent on supporting pupils education and it is up to the school to determine how it is best spent to improve opportunities and maximise outcomes for pupils.

A high percentage of our pupils (51%) are entitled to receive Pupil Premium funding. This funding has enabled us to build strong pupil welfare support, provide more academic guidance and high-quality teaching, while targeting more intensive support on those pupils who are in receipt of the funding and who need it the most.

All schools are required to report the amount of funding they have received, plan how they will spend it and explain the outcomes achieved from the investment made.

You can read our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2022 – 2025 here.

You can read our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2021- 2024 here.

You can read our Pupil Premium Expenditure Report 2021/22 here.

Catch-up Funding

The Catch-up Premium Fund is additional funding provided to schools to support those pupils who did not reach the expected standard in Key Stage 2 tests. The funding is equivalent to an additional £500 per pupil.

Schools can use this funding in a variety of ways, but always with the purpose of ensuring this specific group of pupils are provided with the best opportunities to catch up with their peers quickly.

All schools are required to report the amount of funding they have received, plan how they will spend it and explain the outcomes achieved from the investment made.

Haughton Academy planned ‘Disadvantaged’ expenditure

The ‘Disadvantaged’ fund is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement, including pupils who are currently entitled to free school meals (FSM), those who have had a FSM entitlement in the last 6 years (FSM Ever 6), those looked after by the local authority (LAC) and the children of armed service personnel (Service Children).

The allocation of the disadvantaged fund is as follows:-

DISADVANTAGED PUPILSADDITIONAL FUNDING PER PUPIL
Pupils in Years 7 – 11 recorded as current FSM£985
Pupils in Years 7 – 11 recorded as Ever 6£985
Looked After Children (including children adopted from
care or who have left care under a Special Guardianship / Residence Order)
£2410
Service Children (eligible for past 4 years)£310

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used. Once information is available, key outcomes for disadvantaged pupils will be reported upon.

For the academic year 2021/24, Haughton Academy will receive approximately £420,000 (provisional) in ‘disadvantaged’ funding. This additional financial resource will be used to help implement a series of initiatives and strategies, that will focus on helping to ensure that ‘disadvantaged’ pupils at Haughton Academy, are given the best chance to perform as well as pupils from ‘non-disadvantaged’ backgrounds.

Haughton Academy is a school with a very challenging context. It is in a very deprived area as the English Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) 2018 shows, has very high numbers of disadvantaged pupils, 47%, almost double the national average, and predominantly made up of white British pupils, 94%, who are entitled to receive additional disadvantaged funding. The additional funding has enabled us to build on the strong pupil welfare support, academic guidance and high quality teaching that all of our pupils enjoy and target more intensive support to those whose pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds whose attainment and progress are weakest.

SEND

Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND)

A child or young person has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she has:

  • Significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
  • A disability which prevents or hinders him/her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post 16 institutions

We value all of our pupils and ensure they are seen as individuals. We have an inclusive ethos and we work to increase the learning and participation of all pupils, ensuring access to an appropriate curriculum. SEND is seen as a whole school issue.

Every teacher is a teacher of every young person, including those with SEND or any other additional need. We work closely with our children, families and a wide range of professionals to ensure the best possible educational outcomes and future for pupils.

Through our SEND provision, we aim to:

  • Ensure equality of opportunity for all – pupils should be able to access a wide range of learning opportunities and be fully integrated into social aspects of school life
  • Ensure the specific needs of individual pupils are identified and met, whether on a short or long term basis, and all staff are involved in this process, as well as external agencies, where necessary
  • Providing appropriate support to allow all pupils to achieve the highest possible academic outcomes (pupils with SEND should be making at least expected progress) as well as in other aspects of school life
  • Raising the self-esteem and aspirations of pupils with SEND and developing their skills as independent learners
  • Developing and maintaining effective ways of communication with parents/carers
  • Following the requirements and recommendations of the SEND Code of Practice 2015

You can read our SEND policy on our Policies page.

You can read our SEND Information Report (October 2022) here.

We also support Darlington Borough Council’s Local Learning Offer. The offer provides further information on the range of education health and social care services available to young people, parents and carers. Further information on the Darlington SEND Local Offer can be accessed here.
