The Yellow Flag Programme

The Yellow Flag Programme is a progressive equality & diversity initiative for primary & secondary schools which promotes & supports an environment of interculturalism.

How does it operate?

The programme operates through a co-operative approach of students, staff, management, parents and wider community groups, so that issues of diversity and equality are not merely seen as “school subjects” but can be understood and taken outside the school setting into everyday life.

In effect it’s an 8 step practical programme run in schools to:

  1. Support children to have pride in their own culture & identity & learn about other children’s culture
  2. Support schools develop an environment in which all children thrive and where unfair discrimination & racism is challenged
  3. Encourage & promote active partnership & engagement & effective communication between Teachers, students, parents & Community.
