The Award

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.

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)

There are Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards, allowing 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.

What's Included

When you sign up for an Equalities Award package, you will receive a comprehensive Welcome Pack and access to your own password protected online audit toolkit. A member of the EqualiTeach team will come and visit your school to meet with you, conduct a learning walk and provide guidance to support you to start your journey. EqualiTeach’s helpful team is also available to provide telephone and e-mail advice as you undertake your Equalities Award.

Upon completion of your Award you will receive a beautifully designed electronic portfolio, alongside a certificate or plaque and license to use the Equalities Award logo.

Equality, diversity and inclusion are vital to an education setting’s success. Actively promoting equality allows schools to create a safe, supportive environment; improve attendance, attainment, behaviour and safety.
