Local charity is delivering the nationally recognised Rainbow Flag Award to schools in West Yorkshire.

The Rainbow Flag Award is a national quality assurance framework for primary schools, secondary schools, SEND schools and colleges. The award focuses on positive LGBT+, (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities), inclusion and visibility. The Rainbow Flag Award encourages a whole organisation approach to LGBT+ inclusion, as well as developing strategies to effectively challenge and combat LGBTphobic bullying.

Committing your school or college to the Rainbow Flag Award is a commitment to improve the lives of all the young people that you work with, including those that are LGBT+, those from LGBT+ families, and LGBT+ staff members.

The Rainbow Flad Award is a year long undertaking, followed by two years accrediatation with the Rainbow Flag Award kite mark. You will be supported throughout the year to achieve the kite mark and receive training from Yorkshire MESMAC, a local LGBT+ charity with expertise in working with the local LGBT+ community. 

If you would like your school to take part in this work, the first cohort is starting in September 2021, and the second cohort will be starting in January 2022.
