The Equality and Community Cohesion Duties Toolkit for Schools Click for more details

The Equality Act requires all schools to meet a single positive statutory duty in the areas of: Age, Disability, Gender Reassignment, Race, Religion or Belief, Sex and Sexual Orientation by 1st April 2011.

The Ofsted school inspection framework also continues to include judgements about equality & diversity and community cohesion which can have a limiting effect on judgements made with regard to overall effectiveness.

The Equality and Community Cohesion Duties Toolkit for Schools ensures that your school meets all aspects of the Duties in the most cost and time efficient way, by providing you with:

  • A full compliment of templates and guidance;

  • A comprehensive set of resources which guide you step-by-step through the entire process of responding to the Equality and Community Cohesion Duties;

  • Practical, clear and comprehensive advice;

  • Templates and guidance for your School's Intranet; and

  • Online support, including a personal response to your queries, as well as practical examples of documents produces by other schools.Price 155

Daniel Wood Associates is a specialist Equality and Diversity consultancy working in the education sector.

The Toolkit has been developed in partnership with e-learnuk, utilising their expertise in online learning and interactive publication development.

Note: The Toolkit is available in both CD-ROM and Online formats. The reason for offering two different formats is simply so that a choice exists for you to choose your own preferred format. You should be aware that, by its nature, a CD-ROM will contain 'fixed content' (i.e. this is the content that is loaded on to the CD disc at a particular point in time), whereas the content of the Online format is regularly updated. Therefore, as stated throughout all of our literature concerning this publication, we suggest that you opt to use the Online format so that you can be assured you are accessing the most up-to-date version this is particularly relevant to sections 9 and 10 of this publication which are only available Online because examples of good practice and Frequently Asked Questions are regularly added as they become available. We recognise that some may prefer to use the CD-ROM format and would note that the CD-ROM also provides a direct link for you to access the Online publication where you have an internet connection. Should you prefer the CD-ROM format, please be aware that it is designed to run on PC.
