Gender equality project 2018

As part of our links with Asia and other countries across the world, we are looking at gender issues with schools in these different countries. As part of this project we conducted a questionaire to gain information about any gender issues there may be in this school.

Of the 42 questionnaires returned, 35 scored 8 or higher (83%) outlining strong belief amongst parents and pupils that pupils at Thelwall Junior School are treated equally.

 

Results of Q2:

Do you feel that there are any areas of Thelwall Junior School life where boys and girls do not have the same opportunities?

Yes:                                13

No:                                29

The majority of fifteen optional responses related to: football at break time (Girls day on Wednesday) and sports tournaments, one response regarding under-representation of boys in celebration assemblies, one of girls not having the same opportunity of challenge in lessons as boys.

Results of Q3:

Outside of school, what do you feel the most critical 3 areas of gender inequality are today in the UK? (for example; pay, sport, employment, maternity/paternity leave, pension retirement age… please use own ideas also)

‘Other’ areas (2 references or less) included: flexible working for fathers, need for more women in construction/engineering, TV roles, cost of hair products, public toilets/not enough women’s, senior roles held by men, roles in military, international women's day, no international men's day, car insurance, workplace roles, Scouts and Guides and not enough baby changing in men’s toilets.

 

In response to the above concern relating to playtime football and sport:

The issue of break time football was taken to school council. The main issue came from the boys that the girls have there own day on a Wednesday. All classes were consulted and voted on different options for playtime football. It was democratically voted to remain the same with Girls continuing to have there own day on a Wednesday.

A record will be kept of all clubs, competitions and sporting events and reviewed towards the end of Summer 2019 to ensure opportunities are given to both boys and girls.

We now await the responses from the schools in Asia to make comparisons between our school and those in Napal and Thialand.
