Equalities Award - Silver
The Equalities Award provides support and guidance for schools to effectively promote equality, diversity and inclusion and allows schools to showcase their commitment to equality. We are currently working towards our Silver Accreditation.
The Award has been designed by a team of equality and education experts to allow schools to fulfil their statutory duties to:
- Eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity, and foster good relations (Equality Act 2010)
- Promote community cohesion (Education and Inspections Act 2006)
- Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism (Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015)
- Safeguard children and promote spiritual moral, social and cultural development (Education Act 2002)
If you would like any more information about our work towards the equalities award, or have expertise in this area which can help us in our journey, please contact Mrs A Sharp, Assistant Headteacher – Diversity and Equality.
