    Working with E&C has really helped us shape our thinking and planning for our school environment, curriculum and ethos, so thank you. I realised I could offer solutions, thoughts and resources to others

    Primary School Lead Teacher 

    'I am just emailing to pass on my wholehearted support for the Educate & Celebrate EDI Award programme. I consider it to be the school's (and my own!) duty to prepare my children for life in an ever-changing, constantly diversifying 21st century Britain. I want my children, and their friends, to know that there is no such thing as 'normal' or 'right', and that to accept and value others who may appear to be different to oneself is an unquestioning attribute of a fair and just society.'

    Over 80 schools in Durham have achieved their PRIDE in Inclusion award to date, thanks to our long standing partnership with Durham County Council Children and Young People's Services. We have also been able to provide training  for council staff.
