Vision, Ethos and Equality

"Everyone Excels In all Endeavours"....

At DSTC, we value each and every one of the students in our care. As a thriving foundation school, we strive to bring out the very best in everyone who engages with our school community.

Our students:

  • Will make above expected progress in all subjects at all levels, through quality first teaching in a culture of excellence.
  • Will be challenged, supported and inspired in equal measure, through appropriate pathways from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 5.
  • Are proactively supported through their adolescent years, becoming morally well-grounded young adults.
  • Will become the best version of themselves, making the most of the excellent opportunities available to develop their character.
  • Will make a positive contribution to the local community, working in partnerships where appropriate.
  • Will embrace the Co-operative Trust values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality and solidarity.

Equality Objectives 2020-21

Whilst continuously aiming to improve the implementation of equality related policies and procedures, Dartford Science and Technology College has established the following objectives for the college year 2020-21:

  • To analyse the academic progress of specific student cohorts and put intervention plans in place as necessary to support progress.

  • Analyse behaviour data re. representation of specific groups and put in place strategies to tackle any issues highlighted. 

  • To audit the involvement of student groups students in ‘whole college life’ (extra-curricular opportunities such as clubs, residentials etc) and if necessary develop strategies to address engagement issues that are identified.

  • Review provision for students with physical disabilities and mobility issues and ensure that curriculum and wider college experience is fully accessible as identified in the Accessibility Plan.

  • To enable the College ‘experience’ to more closely reflect and celebrate the multicultural country in which students live.

  • To reduce the incidence of prejudice-related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010.

  • To promote cultural development and understanding through a rich range of experiences both in and beyond the college.
