Public Sector Equality Duty


We are committed to the development of cohesive communities both within our school setting and within our local, national and global environments. Our school embraces the goal of working together with others to improve outcomes for our children’s learning and wellbeing. 

The Equality Act 2010 was introduced to ensure protection from discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of specific characteristics (referred to as protected characteristics). This means that schools cannot discriminate against pupils or treat them less favourably because of their sex, race, disability, religion or belief, gender reassignment, sexual orientation or pregnancy or maternity.

The Act introduced requires all schools to comply with the Public Sector Equality Duty and two specific duties.

In complying with this duty, we are therefore committed to promoting strategies, opportunities, policies and procedures that will help us:

  • eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation;
  • remove or minimise disadvantages;
  • take steps to meet different needs;
  • encourage participation when it is disproportionately low;
  • advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it; and
  • foster good relations across all protected characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.


The Two “specific duties” requires us to:

  • Publish information to show compliance with the Equality Duty
  • Publish Equality Objectives at least every 4 years which are specific and measurable

We recognise that these duties reflect international human rights standards as expressed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, and the Human Rights Act 1998.


Equality Statement:

Our Equality Statement is based on the principles above and aims to ensure that:

 ‘All pupils and members of staff at our School are provided with opportunities to fulfil their potential whatever their sex, race, colour ethnic or national origin, marital status, age, sexual orientation, disability or religious belief.’
