Our school self-evaluation programme focuses on preparation for life in modern democratic Britain and a global society.
Part of the duty on schools under the Equality Act 2010 is to foster good relations between people of different backgrounds and characteristics. We show you how. Much of this reflects the duty to promote community cohesion. We also specialise in projects to build resilience to extremism.
We offer detailed staff training on the importance of equality work to Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC).
Projects such as school-linking, Model United Nations and working towards the Unicef Rights-Respecting School Award, for example, have far-reaching effects across a whole school community.
Removing feelings of oppression can have a dramatic effect on the attainment of many individual pupils, such as those who may be Lesbian, gay or bisexual, or who are the victims of discrimination.
The business case for fulfilling the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 is to avoid embarrassing and costly discrimination claims by staff or parents.
Equality work relies on a global dimension. Our advice and training features all the benefits (and potential pitfalls) of international links.
Engagement of parents is basic both to collecting sound and relevant equality information, and to developing relevant equality objectives for publication under the Equality Act 2010.
Ofsted clearly positions prejudice-related bullying under the priority area of Behaviour and Safety. Equality580 can share a wealth of experience with you in recognising, recording, managing and ultimately eliminating such incidents.
Maintaining the progress not just of pupils with SEN but other disabled pupils is fundamental to preventing inequality in schools, and is being inspected as such.
Qualitative information obtained from student surveys and focus groups provide an essential complement to numerical data. We do not recommend leaving this to a School Council.
Equality580 training shows how to give adults and children confidence in challenging inappropriate behaviour, discrimination or harassment in an atmosphere of respect and trust. We also show how staff confidence is essential to providing a planned and safe space to discuss those controversial issues too often ducked in schools.
