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.

Schools begin working towards the Award in half-termly cohorts, and with high demand we are often registering schools up to two terms in advance. Regsitrations are currently on hold due to overwhelming demand. Contact us to be added to our waiting list.

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 meet with you and provide guidance to support you to start your journey. EqualiTeach’s helpful team is also available to provide 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.

No matter what type of school they attend, it is important that all children leave with an understanding of the world they are growing up in, having learned how to live alongside, and show respect for, a diverse range of people. When we inspect schools, we assess how well they equip children to do this.​ - Ofsted, 2020

The Award was established in 2011 and over 800 schools have been part of the scheme since its origins.
