The Equality Act 2010 and Public Sector Equality Duty 2011

These were introduced to ensure protection from discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of specific characteristics (referred to as protected characteristics). For schools, this means that it is unlawful to discriminate against individuals or treat them less favourably because of their gender; race; age; disability; religion or belief; gender reassignment; sexual orientation; pregnancy or maternity.

Under the Equality Act, the school is expected to comply with the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED). This requires us to:

Boorley Park School is an inclusive school where we focus on the well-being and progress of every child and staff member and where we value all members of our community.

As a public organisation, we are required to:

Our Equalities Policy is in line with national guidance and contains information about how the school complies with the Public Sector Equality Duty. We also give guidance to staff and the wider school community on our approach to promoting equality.

We believe that the Equality Act provides a framework to support our commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality and fostering good relationships between people. It also ensures that we continue to tackle issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups.

At Boorley Park School, we observe good practices in relation to staff recruitment, retention and development.
