  • tackling racism and promoting intercultural awareness through the curriculum and other activities.
  • responding appropriately and effectively to racist incidents.

Equality policy statement template

It is no longer a requirement for schools to develop and publish equality policies and schemes but several schools have found it useful to use a scheme to clarify aims, actions and responsibilities in relation to equality issues. We have produced an equality document template you may find useful.
