Diversity Equity & Inclusion


Office Meeting

Compassion-Focused Approach 

Do you want to ensure your school enables ALL staff and students to…


🌿 feel seen, heard, and valued?

🌿 part of an inclusive supportive community?


🌿 feel psychologically safe in the environment?

🌿 understand the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion?

If the answer is 'yes' then conducting a Diversity Equity & Inclusion review, and embedding an action plan, would be a great next step your school!

Diversity enables mulit-perspectivity, equity creates a fair environment and can help to provide opportunities for individuals who need it, and inclusion helps staff and students  feel a sense of belonging and understanding..

Create a Sense of Belonging

Sensitive to your needs

DEI Consultancy with Nicola, starts with reviewing the current outlook of your school, by conducting a formal audit.


We explore how your school adheres to supporting the protected characteristics outlined in the Equality Act 2010; and your approach to cultural sensitivity, amongst other key areas.

Cultural sensitivity, is the awareness, understanding, and acceptance of cultures and cultural identities within your staff and student global majority community. In addition, we review how your school integrates this into the wider school community, including mental health, and the curriculum. 

The whole process is embedded into the BELONG model (developed by Psychologists) using the  following themes:

🌿 Belonging: Do we have a culture of openness in which people can speak up and be themselves?

🌿 Equity: Does everyone have equal opportunity, feel valued and rewarded?


🌿 Leadership: Are senior leaders standing up for DEI and role modelling the right attitudes and behaviours?

🌿 Opportunity: Do people receive fair and respectful treatment? Are we zero-tolerant?

🌿 Normative: Do we actively encourage/create diversity and have representation at all levels?


🌿 Governance: Are people complying, or do we have incidence of bullying, harassment, and discrimination? How are we at handling this?
