This example demonstrates how school leaders have achieved great success in establishing a caring and cohesive community where difference is not ‘tolerated’ but celebrated. The school’s successful work to tackle homophobia and other forms of discrimination has secured a safe and caring environment which promotes students’ achievements, confidence and self-esteem. It also highlights the wide range of activities which promote PSHE education and citizenship effectively.
