Prince Henry’s Grammar School is the Equality and Diversity Regional Hub Lead School for Lancashire and West Yorkshire. The school is one of the eight Regional Hubs – there is one for each RSC Region (follow this link
to find the Equality and Diversity Hub Lead School for your region). Each Hub Lead School receives funding from the DfE to support the delivery of equality and diversity programmes across the region. The aim is to help teachers, who are covered by at least one of the protected characteristics, progress into leadership.
As a Hub School, Prince Henry’s allocates funding to ‘delivery schools’ across the Lancashire and West Yorkshire region who have demonstrated the ability to provide high-quality school-led equality and diversity programmes in their local area. Prince Henry’s also supports delivery schools by providing programme materials and quality assurance. The range of programmes across the region includes:
- Deputy Headteacher / Headteacher Internship Programme for BAME leaders
- Deputy Headteacher / Headteacher Internship Programme for women leaders
- Maternity / Paternity Programmes
- Church leadership Programmes
- Know Your Leadership Style for BAME and women leaders
- Diverse Leaders for Tomorrow Programme
- Mentoring programmes of BAME and women leaders
State-funded schools in England (Ofsted ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’) can apply to their Regional Hub lead School for funding to deliver an equality and diversity programme in their local area.
The DfE funding model means that equality and diversity programmes are free to access for individual teachers (at any stage in their career) who are covered by at least one of the protected characteristics. Teachers should contact their Regional Hub School (via this link
) for information about the diversity programmes offered in their region.
