The Lancashire Equality Mark is awarded to schools who have taken measures to embed Equality throughout their practice with the goal of enabling all pupils to thrive in a supportive learning community. It has been developed by a working group in Lancashire and provides a clear framework to guide schools through the process of auditing, developing and consolidating good practice in different areas of Equality. It builds on and extends the good practice of the Lancashire Race Equality Mark
The Equality Mark comprises five individual Equality Badges:
Race Equality Badge
Gender Equality Badge
Disability Equality Badge
Sexual Orientation Equality Badge
Religion and Belief EqualityBadge
When a school achieves all five badges they will be awarded the Equality Mark. Schools determine their own pathway through the framework by identifying meaningful priorities that will make a difference in the area of equality in their school community and willsupport their wider development plans. Schools can work at their own pace and they can choose from a range of packages of support to meet their individual requirements.
