Support and challenge for settings to improve whole school approaches to equality and anti-bullying

Primary, secondary and special schools in Brighton & Hove have a strong commitment to the development of anti-bullying and equality practice and to working in partnership with the Council’s Equality and Anti-Bullying Service resulting in some improving outcomes for some protected groups of children and young people.

Evidence shows that when children and young people feel safe and have a positive sense of belonging and identity then they learn and make good progress. Equality and anti-bullying work therefore has an essential role to play in school improvement, and in meeting statutory safeguarding and equality duties. The Equality and Anti-Bullying Service will benefit schools in ensuring Ofsted readiness and to:

  • Fulfil their statutory duty to promote wellbeing (Children’s Act, 2004) and duties under the Equality Act (2010)
  • Ensure measures are in place to prevent all forms of bullying (Education and Inspections Act, 2006)
  • Meet requirements of the Prevent Duty (2015) including support for the promotion of (British) values
  • Support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils (Education Reform Act, 1988, Ofsted Framework)
  • Receive a positive judgment under the Ofsted Framework related to personal development, behaviour and welfare
  • Closing gaps between groups of pupils or students (Ofsted Framework).
