Rainbow Flag Award – Onboarding
13th September 2021 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm BST
Support U is proud to be delivering The Rainbow Flag Award to schools and colleges in The Thames Valley.
The Rainbow Flag Award is a national quality assurance framework for primary schools, secondary schools, SEND schools and colleges. The award focuses on positive LGBT+, (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities), inclusion and visibility. The Rainbow Flag Award encourages a whole organisation approach to LGBT+ inclusion, as well as developing strategies to effectively challenge and combat LGBTphobic* bullying.
Committing your school or college to the Rainbow Flag Award is a commitment to improve the lives of all the young people that you work with, including those that are LGBT+, those from LGBT+ families, and LGBT+ staff members.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Through a year-long process of self-assessment and ongoing monitoring and feedback, schools and colleges have access to a variety of training, resources and interventions, helping them meet set standards in each of the following areas:
- – Skilled Teachers
- – Supportive Governors and Parents
- – Effective Policies
- – Inclusive Curriculum
- – Pastoral Support
- – Student Voice
This session is the first kick-off session of the scheme, and the price includes the first 2 years of membership to the scheme.
