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.
People have noticed and commented on how positive the school is.
