Public Sector Equality Duty


Public Sector Equality Duty  



The Public Sector Equality Duty 2011 has three aims under the general duty for schools, academies and settings:


  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act. By removing or minimising disadvantages suffered by people due to their protected characteristics.


  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. By taking steps to meet the needs of people from protected groups where these are different from the needs of other people


  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. By encouraging people from protected groups to participate in public life or in other activities where their participation is disproportionately low.



Our school has considered how well we currently achieve these aims.


The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) requires public bodies to be transparent about how they are responding to the Equality Duty including publishing relevant, proportionate information showing compliance with the Equality Duty, and at least one equality objective.


The equality objective we have set based on examining the questions above is:

To narrow the gap in attendance between our vulnerable groups and all learners within our school community.
