Public Sector Equality Duty

Schools are required to publish information showing how they comply with the new Equality Duty

Schools are required to publish information which is updated annually showing how they comply with the new Equality Duty and to set at least one equality objective every 4 years.  The need to advance equality of opportunity is defined in the Equality Act 2010 as having due regard to the need to:

1  Remove or minimise disadvantages.
2  Take steps to meet different needs.
3  Encourage participation when it is disproportionately low.

The PED extends to the following protected characteristics:

Age (as an employer, not regarding pupils)
Sexual Orientation
Pregnancy and Maternity
Gender Reassignment

In our school we have used the Suffolk Equalities and Analysis Workbook for Primary Schools to help us identify any areas of our practice that may need improvement.  The Workbook is not available on this website because our school population is so small, that individuals would be easily identified, even though the data is anonymous.  However, a copy is kept in school for Ofsted Inspection.

Our Objectives are:

1  To raise the pupil voice by giving the School Council a higher profile.
2  To ensure that attendance is at least equal to the National level.
3  To raise the achievement and progress of children in our ‘vulnerable groups’* to at least be in line with that of their peers.

A copy of our Equality Objectives Plan is kept in School for Ofsted Inspection.
