Rainbow Flag Award (LGBT)

The Rainbow Flag Award is a quality assurance framework for schools, primary and secondary. Through a process of self-assessment and ongoing monitoring and feedback, schools will determine how well they are providing safe and supportive environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) students, taking a whole school approach. In May 2019 Oswald Road Primary School was accredited as meeting the required standard in the ‘Skilled Teacher’ and ‘Supportive Governors & Parents’sections of The Rainbow Flag Award.

At Oswald Road we feel that it is our duty to equip our children with the knowledge and skills they will need for life in modern day Britain, which is why we are working towards achieving all areas of the award. We feel it is important to create a safe environment for any of our pupils, staff or families that may identify as LGBT and also provide positive education around LGBT topics.
