Equality: Making It Happen - A guide to help schools ensure everyone is safe, included and learning

CSIE's go-to equality guide helps schools address prejudice, reduce bullying and promote equality holistically. Created with primary and secondary schools, this is a "seductively practical" set of reference cards covering all aspects of equality. It offers key information, simple and practical advice, equality audit tools, examples of good practice and links to sources of further information and support. As one Assistant Headteacher said: "this should be part of every teacher's toolkit". A SENCo has described the guide as “an absolutely amazing resource that is easy to use and extremely well designed” and an Inclusion Manager has said that it "can have an impact on children's life chances and, ultimately, on the kind of society we live in". "Equality: Making It Happen" is sponsored by teachers' union NASUWT and has won an Innovative Practice Award 2016 from the Zero Project, for a world with zero barriers. Extracts from "Equality: Making It Happen", including Frequently Asked Questions, equality audit questionnaires and a range of reference cards, are available either free or at £2 each from our CSIE shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/CSIE.

Contrasting responses to diversity

Contrasting responses to diversity

Contrasting responses to diversity: school placement trends 2007-13 for all local authorities in England has been researched and written for CSIE by Dr Alison Black and Professor Brahm Norwich, of the University of Exeter. This is the latest in a long (since the 1980s) series of CSIE reports on school placement trends, i.e. the proportion of children placed in special schools or other separate settings by each local authority in England. It reveals huge variation among local authorities, which cannot be explained by the size of a local authority or its social or geographical characteristics. Such clear and detailed information will be of interest to parents, education professionals and campaigners alike. It can help people reach better informed decisions about individual children's school placements and formulate better informed evaluations of provision at local and national levels. For anyone mostly interested in numbers, the table showing percentages by year and by local authority is available separately (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/percentage-of-0-19-year-olds-placed-in-special-settings-by-each-local-authority-in-england-2007-13-11363240).
