Equality: Making It Happen
A guide for schools to make sure everyone is safe, included and learning (2015)

Equality: Making It Happen (pilot edition)
A guide for schools to make sure everyone is safe, included and learning (2015)

This practical and accessible guide has been developed by CSIE in collaboration with primary and secondary schools. User-friendly reference cards, organised around equality strands and around aspects of everyday school life, offer succinct, practical advice and suggested activities; examples of good practice; and sources of further information and support. Materials also include: equality monitoring questionnaires for staff, pupils and parents; key information on equality legislation and a range of equality strands; and a CD with electronic copies of all printed materials and additional resources.

“Equality: Making It Happen” addresses equality holistically, places pupils at the heart of protecting children’s rights in school and is relevant to children of all ages. Materials can be used for teaching & learning activities, assemblies, peer mentoring, school council, staff training, and whole school development.

This is a pilot edition and CSIE is making the few remaining copies available at a bargain price ! A new edition of this guide will be published in January 2016.
