St Catherine's Catholic School

Equalities Award

The school is delighted to have achieved the Silver Equalities award, in our drive to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion lie at the heart of all areas of the school. 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 being drawn into terrorism (Counter Terrorism and Security Act, 2015)
  • Safeguard children and promote spiritual moral, social and cultural development (Education Act, 2002)

It followed an audit of the entire school: Personal Development; Teaching and Learning; Behaviour and Wellbeing; Leadership and Management. We are proud to have meet the stringent criteria for each strand, and we will continue to build on this as part of our Catholic Ethos. Students, parents, carers, staff, and other members of our community can email to ask questions, or make comments, on matters of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
