Rainbow Flag

RFA MAR 19

 

This award is a national quality assurance framework for all schools and colleges, focusing on 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 combat HBTphobic bullying. (Homophobic, transphobic and biphopbic)

It is a commitment to improve the lives of all the young people that we work with, as well as the LGBT+ young people in our care, those from LGBT+ families, and LGBT+ staff members.
To achieve this, we have had to meet set standards in various areas, such as effective policies, skilled teachers and an inclusive curriculum as well as supportive governors.
Though perhaps the main benefit for the young people will be a dedicated pastoral support team.
