The Highcrest Academy

The EQualities Award 

The EQualities Award recognises the academy’s commitment to treating everyone equally.

To gain this award, Highcrest had to identify and review the different ways in which the academy engenders equality of opportunity and raises outcomes for all learners regardless of gender, disability, faith and ethnicity, sexual identity and socio-economic disadvantage. The promotion of our pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development was also a core feature of the audit, which also focused on safeguarding, bullying and the promotion of fundamental British values. The award is valid for three years.
