Sir Norton Knatchbull - 1637

RACE Charter Mark

The Norton Knatchbull School is recognised for their commitment to action and improvement in relation to race equality.

Congratulations to The Norton Knatchbull School who have been recognised nationally for their  commitment to improving race equality and prioritising an inclusive culture where staff, students, parents and partners of all ethnicities are equally valued, by being awarded the bronze level RACE Charter Mark.

Developed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network) and Fig Tree International, the Race and Conscious Equality (RACE) Charter Mark is for schools, academies and colleges, both in the state and private sectors, in the UK who wish to demonstrate their commitment to action and improvement in relation to race equality in all aspects of their work as educators, employers and community leaders.

To achieve the charter mark, The Norton Knatchbull School completed a comprehensive package of training for governors, senior leaders and middle leaders, and submitted an evaluation detailing their work towards equality so far and an action plan pledging their commitment to ongoing development in this area.

I am delighted that The Norton Knatchbull School has been awarded the bronze RACE Charter mark. Their application and action plan clearly show a positive ethos and culture which champions and strives for conscious equality and inclusivity throughout the school community. We look forward to continuing to work with the school to see their strategic vision fully realised. - Angelina Idun, Director of Education, SSAT

I am absolutely delighted that The Norton Knatchbull School is receiving this recognition.  This recognises their determination to make a difference, not only in their own school, but also in the local community.  The Norton Knatchbull School has joined a great group of schools and colleges who are part of the RACE Charter Mark community. We applaud them for their work and aspirations to build a more inclusive society. - Ann Palmer, CEO, Fig Tree International
