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.
- gender reassignment
- pregnancy and maternity
- religion or belief
- 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:
Objective 1: To increase engagement of pupils and families who use the school bus service.
Objective 2: To improve outcomes for disadvantaged* pupils at KS2
Objective 3: To improve outcomes for boys at KS2
* Free School Meals, Looked After Children, Gender, English as an Additional Language and Special Educational Needs and Disability.
(Due to the small number of pupils at our school, we will not publish the data as evidence as individuals may be identified, but is available for OFSTED inspection)
