FOR SCHOOLS

You can still browse our resources whilst you wait. A pop up chat window will appear once one of the Proud Connection team is available.

Why not explore our word of the day:

Biromantic

The Proud Trust is proud to be delivering The Rainbow Flag Award to schools in the North West of England.

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

The starter training:

Was by far the most informative, insightful, interesting, pacey, well-delivered CPD I’ve done in 10 years of teaching. I was already excited to go into school and start this journey, but this has really hyped me up!! Mr N Wilson, Hillcrest Primary School

Committing your school 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.

To enquire about taking part in the Rainbow Flag Award, please email rainbowflagaward@theproudtrust.org, or call 07531 061777.

THE RAINBOW FLAG AWARD IS NOT PRESCRIPTIVE, WE DO NOT TELL YOU WHAT TO DO…

Instead, we help you self-identify and self-determine which are the most appropriate ways to implement positive LGBT+ inclusion in your settings, that best compliments your staff, your students, your parents and your wider communities.

Through a year-long process of self-assessment and ongoing monitoring and feedback, schools and colleges have access to a variety of training, resources and interventions, helping them meet set standards in each of the following areas:

SUPPORTING LOCAL

While the Rainbow Flag Award is a national framework, delivery is by LGBT+ organisations working with LGBT+ communities in your local area. The Proud Trust has a 45+ year history of working with LGBT+ young people in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and beyond. This means that the content of any training will be up to date and relevant, with the needs and experiences of LGBT+ young people from across the North West of England at the heart of delivery. Any monies generated from this scheme will help fund our vital work with LGBT+ young people locally.
