Equate is a tailor made secondary school provision. Equate is designed to educate young people about domestic abuse, gender equality and the importance of healthy relationships in ensuring mental wellbeing.
Designed for secondary school pupils in all year groups, the comprehensive selection of lessons fits well into the existing RSE and PSHE curriculum. Recognising that all schools have a unique community, Equate offers bespoke lessons to meet the needs of individual schools. Equate delivers to approximately 8,000 pupils in Nottingham City and County each year and we’re proud of the relationships we’ve built with the schools we work with.
The project is reviewed yearly to ensure we are up to date with responding to feedback and the wider needs of children and young people.
