We aim for Crompton House CofE School to be an inclusive community for all students irrespective of their sexual orientation or gender expression. We feel it is our duty to equip our children with the knowledge and skills they will need for life in Modern Britain. It is important to us to create a safe environment for our LGBTQ+ pupils, staff and families and provide positive an age-appropriate education on LGBTQ+ topics.

To ensure we are effective as possible in our commitment to the inclusion of all our students, we are currently working towards completion of the Rainbow Flag Award accredited by the Proud Trust.

Church of England – Valuing all God’s Children

Please click here to read: Layout 1 (churchofengland.org)

‘Church of England schools must ensure that their pupils are secure and able to make excellent progress whatever their background. They are invited into a school that aims to provide an education which leads to an abundant life. Every person in the school community is a child of God. At the heart of Christian distinctiveness in schools is an upholding of the worth of each person: all are Imago Dei – made in the image of God – and are loved unconditionally by God. The hallmark of authentic, life-giving relationships is recognition of the sacredness of the other so that all are welcomed wholeheartedly and with reverence. Each person in all their unique difference should be able to thrive, irrespective of physical appearance, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, academic ability, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity.’

The Rainbow Flag Award

The Rainbow Flag Award is a national quality assurance framework for all schools and youth-centred organisations. The award focuses on positive LGBT+, (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities), inclusion and visibility.

The Rainbow Flag Award encourages a whole organisation approach to LGBT+ inclusion, as well as developing strategies to effectively challenge and combat LGBTphobic bullying.

We are proud to have been awarded three of the six sections and are working towards completion of the final three by the end of September 2024.
