Equality: Making It Happen
A guide for schools to make sure everyone is safe, included and learning (2016)

Equality: Making It Happen
A guide to help schools ensure everyone is safe, included and learning (2016)

New from CSIE: a succinct and user-friendly guide to help schools address prejudice, reduce bullying and promote equality holistically. Created with schools for schools, the guide is sponsored by the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union in the UK, and has won an Innovative Practice Award 2016 from the Zero Project, for a world with zero barriers.

“Equality: Making It Happen” is relevant to children and staff in primary and secondary schools and engages the whole school community, placing pupils at the heart of protecting children’s rights in school. It is made up of user-friendly reference cards which offer: key information, practical advice, suggested activities, examples of good practice, equality audit tools and links to further information and support, including lesson plans.

The guide includes a CD with all printed materials in electronic format, for easy reference and for adapting to a specific context, as well as additional resources. Materials can be used for teaching and learning activities, assemblies, peer mentoring, school council, staff training, equality policy and whole school development.

“Equality: Making It Happen” has received overwhelming praise from staff in schools that have used the pilot edition, for example: “an absolutely amazing resource that is easy to use and extremely well designed” and “this should be part of every teacher’s toolkit”.

Contrasting responses to diversity: school placement trends 2007-2013 for all local authorities in England (2014) cover image

Contrasting responses to diversity: school placement trends 2007-2013 for all local authorities in England (2014)

This report presents school placement trends (i.e. the proportion of children placed in special schools or other separate settings) from 2007 to 2013 for each local authority in England. It reveals huge variation in the proportion of children regularly sent to special schools by each local authority. These differences bear no simple relation to the size of a local authority or its social or geographical characteristics. This information can help parents and professionals in negotiating children’s school placements and can support the efforts of those who want to lobby for change.

Index for Inclusion: developing learning and participation in schools (Revised 2011)
 cover image

Index for Inclusion: developing learning and participation in schools (Revised 2011)

The third edition of the Index for Inclusion, substantially revised and expanded by Tony Booth, is now available. This is a values-based resource for school self-evaluation and improvement. It draws together interventions in education to do with environmental sustainability, global citizenship, community building, health promotion, values, rights and non-violence. It provides a detailed outline of a new curriculum for schools, which reflects children’s experiences and futures and is relevant to young people’s lives in any part of the world.

The Index is an accessible, flexible and practical resource. It encourages the whole school community to work together in reviewing all aspects of cultures, policies and practices in their school. It helps schools to: put their own framework of values into action; carry out a thorough self-evaluation; produce a detailed school improvement plan; minimise barriers to learning and participation; empower adults and children to voice their ideas; and present to governors and inspectors a clear rationale for development.

Spiral bound for easier handling, the revised Index comes with a CD which provides an electronic version of the document and includes questionnaires that can be adapted to the context of individual schools.

Staff in primary and secondary schools have said:

"The discussion on values is the key to inclusion."

"Thought provoking, incredibly useful, challenging document."

"The Index made us think more clearly about things we had assumed were in place."

"Easy to dip into or read all the way through."

"It’s your self-evaluation done for you, in a far better way."
