No Outsiders- Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Schools- 27 June 2019


Under the Equality Act 2010 schools have a duty to tackle prejudice and to promote understanding. In order to fulfil that duty and to prepare children for life in modern Britain, the message from schools should be clear - regardless of age, disability, race, religion, belief, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity all children and all families can live together in an equal, diverse and fully inclusive society.

This is the ethos of the “No Outsiders” programme created by Andrew Moffat, AHT at Parkfield Community School in Birmingham who joins us as a guest speaker at this briefing. Andrew has been widely praised for his equality work and publically supported by Ofsted. A number of schools from across the UK are already embracing his values and his passion for equality. Andrew will discuss his equality work and will explain the legal framework, Ofsted requirements and how schools can build an all-inclusive ethos. He will also discuss the government’s new draft guidance on RSE and Health Education and how with the backing of his school, he has managed parental and other concerns about the teaching of LGBT issues and same sex family relationships. He will discuss how he intends to meet the challenges ahead in his drive for equality across the UK.

Andrew has made a number of national television and radio appearances and was awarded an MBE for his work in November 2017. He was a top 10 finalist for the Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize 2019.

The briefing will also provide an overview by our equality lead Laura Clark in relation to the law around the protected characteristic of gender reassignment. In particular, Laura will explain how schools can support transgender staff and pupils and help to ensure schools provide a safe, inclusive and respectful environment. Schools often struggle to keep up with the fast - paced changes in this area. Laura will provide guidance around some of the difficult issues facing schools including: - the use of correct language, confidentiality, responding to young people and staff coming out, school uniforms, dealing with transphobic bullying, school residentials and the use of toilets and changing facilities. Laura will discuss how schools can raise awareness and understanding and how they can adopt a whole - school approach to ensure a transgender inclusive environment.
