Our school was awarded the Yellow flag in 2018-2019 for our work on celebrating diversity within our school.

The Yellow Flag Programme provides a practical series of 8 steps that brings issues of interculturalism, equality and diversity into the whole-school programme and allows schools to apply them to the day to day running of the school. It works with students, staff, management, parents and wider community groups so that issues of diversity and equality are not merely seen as “school subjects” but can be understood and taken outside the school setting into everyone’s personal lives.
In parallel with the Green Schools, the Yellow Flag programme is an award scheme, therefore; on completing these steps, and being assessed externally, the school is awarded its “Yellow Flag” in recognition of its work in promoting diversity & inclusion. The award is publicised locally, and the school can fly its flag with pride and use the logo on its official correspondence.
