Wybunbury Delves CE Primary School will promote equal opportunity and will not tolerate inequality in any area of the school's life or work. All will be treated equally and given equal access to the curriculum and life of the school. All will have equal opportunity to benefit from all that we offer. Our intention is to develop an ethos in which all will thrive. Diversity and differences will be valued and respected by all and they will contribute to the richness of our school life and learning.
CDAT, as a trust, has set the following Equality Objectives for the four year period from September 2020 until August 2024:
- To ensure that each CDAT school provides all of its pupils with a rich, broad and balanced curriculum which allows them to achieve well academically and prepares them for the next stage in their education while making sure that no child is disadvantaged because of their background or personal
- To monitor and analyse pupil achievement by race, gender, eligibility for Pupil Premium funding and SEND and act on any trends or patterns in the data that indicate additional support is needed by specific groups of pupils.

CDAT offers equal opportunities to all staff.
