The EIS has a commitment to the promotion of sound learning rooted in equality and inclusivity.

We oppose all forms of prejudice; we want educational establishments to be safe, inclusive environments for all children, young people and staff. Young people have the right to learn and teachers and lecturers have the right to work in an educational environment that is free from discrimination.

We strive to tackle racism and prejudicial attitudes towards refugees; sexism and misogyny; homophobia and transphobia; anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim prejudice and all other forms of faith-based discrimination; disability related prejudice; ageism; and all forms of hate crime.  We advocate for all teachers and lecturers to be conversant with the Equality Act 2010 and the important protections it confers on people with protected characteristics
