Rainbow Flag Award - GNSA Secondary
THE RAINBOW FLAG AWARD
Our vision and S.H.A.R. E values are rooted in a moral commitment to provide students from all backgrounds with an outstanding education which combines academic, cultural, social, spiritual and moral development. We believe that respecting and valuing individual differences and the appreciation of, and promotion of, cultural diversity is crucial if every child is to thrive.
We are committed to breaking down barriers and cultural divides, instilling values of acceptance and mutual respect that children and young people will carry with them throughout their lives, helping us to realise our vision at GNSA.
We are extremely proud to announce that as of October 2021 we are fully certified as a Rainbow Flag Award School, having successfully completed submissions in all six areas of the award:
- Skilled Teacher
- Supportive Governors and Parents
- Effective Policies
- Inclusive Curriculum
- Pastoral Support
- Student Voice
The Rainbow Flag Award is a national quality assurance framework for schools. The award focuses on positive LGBT+, (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities), inclusion and visibility. It encourages a whole organisation approach to LGBT+ inclusion, as well as developing strategies to effectively challenge and combat LGBTphobic* bullying.
The Rainbow Flag Award gives us a framework to better support LGBT+ inclusion across all of our provision, improving the lives of pupils, staff and families, and is fundamental to the MEA Way of Safe, Respectful, Ready.
