Gender Equality Charter Mark evaluation tool
DECSY, teachers and gender equality experts have developed and trialled a tool to enable a school to measure progress in tackling the effects that gender stereotyping still has on pupils in relation to both subject (and career) choices and as a root of sexual harassment and gender-based violence in schools and wider society. An off-line version of this tool is available here. Please read the instructions for this on our Gender Equality Charter Mark project page.

P4C is an approach to learning and teaching which enhances children’s thinking and communication skills, boosts their self-esteem, and improves their academic attainment. Level 1 introduces theories and practice of P4C.
