educate and celebrate
At Brindishe Schools, Equalities and inclusion are at the heart of all the work that we do. During the academic year 2016-17 Brindishe Schools teamed up with the charity Educate and Celebrate to work together to be recognised as a fully inclusive and LGBT+ friendly school.
Educate & Celebrate (www.educateandcelebrate.org) is an Ofsted and DFE recognised Best Practice Award Programme that gives staff, students, parents and governors the confidence and strategies to implement an LGBT+ inclusive curriculum to successfully eradicate homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.
At Brindishe Schools we designed postcards to promote the 9 protected characteristics from the Equalities Act 2010, so that all our families and even our youngest children could access and understand them. These are shared through assemblies and a range of learning opportunities where children are able discuss and explore them. To view this please click on the link below.
We are very proud to say that through this work with Educate and Celebrate, and the dedication of our staff, children and families, we have been able to continue to celebrate all aspects of our diverse community and were awarded the Gold Best Practice award in July 2017.
