Public Sector Equality Duty

The Public Sector Equality Duty requires public bodies and others carrying out public functions to have due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination, to advance equality of opportunities and foster good relations. This ensures that public bodies consider the needs of all individuals in their day to day work - in shaping policy, in delivering services, and in relation to their own employees. The duty applies to all nine areas of discrimination listed in the Equality Act 2010.

  • age
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation
  • marriage and civil partnership

Note: For marriage and civil partnership, the PSED only requires employers to have due regard to the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination.

We have looked closely at data within our school and have identified the following areas for improvement:
