Welcome To EQUALS
EQUALS is committed to improving the lives of children and young people with learning difficulties and disabilities through supporting high quality education.
To promote, share and reflect best practice in learning and teaching through collaborative working with practitioners and professionals at a national, regional and local level.
EQUALS is a registered charity, committed to supporting the work of teachers of pupils with profound, multiple and severe learning difficulties. EQUALS is non-profit making and has to self finance all of its activities. EQUALS have now been offering its services to schools for 22 years. In this time it has built up a strong record in supporting teachers, who are teaching pupils who are working with the full range of the P Scales and the early levels of the National Curriculum.
Members of the EQUALS Executive have been involved in a number of projects seeking to influence the development of new national initiatives. By being a member of EQUALS you can inform our Executive of issues that affect the pupils in your school and we in turn can raise the issues with the government and other SEN related organisations. The strength of EQUALS is that it is managed by teachers, for teachers. It is a professional organisation that seeks to deliver the highest standards of education to pupils with learning difficulties. EQUALS endeavors to respond quickly to provide focused seminars, workshops and teaching materials that enhance teacher practices in the classroom.
We were delighted to hear that Bernadette Knill and John Ayres two of the founding Trustees of EQUALS were awarded OBEs in the recent New Year’s honours for their services to Special Education.
Bernadette recently retired as Head Teacher at Priory Woods School.
