Get recognised
for being an
inclusive school


Does your school make special effort to be inclusive, taking extra steps to:

  • promote the growth of mutual understanding between those of different cultural backgrounds, religions and non-religious beliefs
  • encourage shared spiritual, moral, social and cultural development in ways appropriate to all staff, pupils and families
  • enhance greater equality of opportunity and tackle discrimination and bullying
  • develop pupils’ capacity for making autonomous choices, being active citizens and contributing to the wider community

If so, then we invite you to nominate your school for the 2015 Accord Inclusivity Award.

The annual Award -  now in its seventh year -  rewards those schools that do most within their particular circumstance to promote mutual understanding; build links within and between communities, and to advance an ethos of inclusion (with particular regard for inclusivity on the grounds of religion and belief). The Award is open to all schools in England and Wales.
