Are you ready?

Becoming a Gender Action school is about more than ticking boxes and jumping through hoops. It is about challenging stereotyping in all aspects of school life. We’re confident schools can become beacons of gender equality if:

There is a commitment from the whole school
Staff, students, parents and governors need to be on board. Ensuring the head, and senior leadership are supportive of your school’s participation is vital.

The resources are in place to support this commitment
As you progress through the framework, there may be training opportunities to line up, and information and insights shared throughout the school.

Main benefits and resources

By launch in early 2019, Gender Action will offer London schools:

  • Access to the tools to benchmark your school’s current policies and practices against national best practice, and a framework to ensure continued development

  • Exclusive use of the Gender Action: Supporter logo once evidence of senior leadership commitment has been verified, with the opportunity to start working towards Gender Action: Innovator, Gender Action: Champion and Gender Action: Beacon recognition

  • Regular newsletters, briefings, and invitations to events

  • A digital platform for displaying progress

London schools - and beyond

Thanks to support from the Mayor of London, we’ve commenced a Phase 1 roll-out in the capital – meaning schools gaining Gender Action: Supporter recognition can progress through to Gender Action: Innovator, Gender Action: Champion and Gender Action: Beacon recognition levels. This will continue through until the end of 2019, when a full roll-out is planned.

Whilst schools across the rest of the UK and the Republic of Ireland can also become a Gender Action: Supporter, we plan to open up the full award programme to all who want to join us in challenging stereotypes in 2020.
