School Equality Auditing Tool

The Equalities Award is an online auditing tool providing schools with the opportunity to evaluate, strengthen and showcase their whole school approach to equality, diversity and inclusion.

Schools working towards an Award are assigned an Award Representative who provides bespoke guidance and support throughout the process. Schools also gain access to the Ideas Hub, which is full of template policies, examples of good practice and guidance documents.

Achieve Goals with Expert Support

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 being drawn into terrorism (Counter Terrorism and Security Act, 2015)
  • Safeguard children and promote spiritual moral, social and cultural development (Education Act, 2002)

Recognition for Your Equality Work

There are bronze, silver and gold levels to allow schools to work at an achievable level and build upon a commitment to equality over time. Schools can progress through the levels as their equalities work develops.

Get Started with Auditing and Recognising Your Work

Completing the Equalities Award has been amazing, I have really enjoyed working on it. It's really made me think deeply and carefully about so many different aspects of the school. The help I have had from my Award Representative has been invaluable. Our school really value equality, diversity and inclusion, and this Award is the perfect way to showcase the work we do for all!
