Assistant headteacher Nick Pauro explained: "This is for pioneering and consistantly embedding the notion of equality in all we do, from what we teach to who we employ and how we cater for all as a Catholic comprehensive school."

The award is run by not-for-profit organisation EqualiTeach, which promotes equality, diversity and inclusion in education.

Staff and pupils must demonstrate how they meet those values by promoting cohesion and development 
in moral, social 
and cultural 
aspects.

The Wood Lane school has been working towards getting the accreditation for the past year, and they will keep the status for three years.
