Lancashire Equality Mark

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. 

For more information about the programme see this factsheet.

Race Equality Mark



Lancashire's Race Equality Mark was a useful self evaluation tool for schools. The audit process helped flag up the gaps and inform action plans as well as recognising effective current practice. 
Schools who are interested in strengthening Race Equality in their school now are encouraged to sign up for the Race Equality Badge which forms part of the Lancashire Equality Mark.  More details can be found in the fact sheet above.
