  1. A Service Manager who is also the Virtual Head Teacher for Gypsy, Roma and Travellers in Kent.
  2. Three Advisory Teachers with a proven track record of improving outcomes for children and young people.

What Do We Do?

Our work contributes to statutory and legal duties in regard to education, equality, safeguarding and teachers’ standards, based on current research, local and national developments.

We provide specialist consultancy, support, training, advice, 1-1 and group pupil support, coaching and mentoring.

Who Do We Support?

We work with all staff and professionals working with children and young people aged 3-24 years of age including those in:

  • schools
  • settings
  • PRUs
  • further education
  • children’s and young people’s services and
  • other agencies.

Our focus is on pupils with protected characteristics, disadvantaged and vulnerable learners, including but not limited to pupils who:

  • are from minority ethnic groups
  • are from Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller communities
  • are refugees or unaccompanied asylum-seeking children and young people
  • speak English as an Additional Language
  • are lesbian, gay, and bisexual
  • are trans, non-binary
  • underachieve due to sexual stereotyping
  • have low literacy skills.

Our Aims

The Equality Diversity Inclusion Team believe that all children and young people have the right to realise their full potential.

We aim to support colleagues to ensure that they and the establishments they work in:

  • uphold equality
  • promote inclusion
  • ensure equality of opportunity through a needs led approach
  • eliminate discrimination, victimisation, and harassment
  • recognise and respect diversity
  • explore identity/identities, developing an understanding of self and others
  • foster healthy relationships
  • develop dialogue and social interaction between communities.

This approach leads to accelerated progress, raised achievement and improved engagement, wellbeing, and inclusion of all pupils but particularly those who could potentially be more susceptible to having poorer outcomes.
