As public bodies, local authority-maintained schools must comply with the public sector equality duty in the Equality Act 2010 and the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017. This means you must publish our Equality Duty Statement on our school website.
We must demonstrate compliance with the public sector duty – for example, including details on how our school is-
- eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited under the Equality Act 2010.
- advancing equality of opportunity – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not.
- fostering good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
- consulting and involving those affected by inequality, in the decisions your school takes to promote equality and eliminate discrimination - affected people could include parents, pupils, staff and members of the local community.
