Equalities and PSED

PSED (Public Sector Equality duty)

What does PSED mean?

All public sector bodies are subject to the Public Sector Equality Duty, which came into force in April 2011. The duty requires schools to take steps not just to eliminate unlawful discrimination and harassment, but also to actively promote equality. As a UNICEF Rights Respecting School (Gold), equality for is at the heart of all that we do.

Equality Objectives 

These are our objectives for 2021 - 2025:

Equality Objective 1: Teaching and Learning To ensure that curriculum design and implementation across all subjects and age groups is inclusive of the protected characteristics relevant to pupils by January 2023.

Equality Objective 2: Leadership and Management Staff recruitment, training and promotion procedures follow good equal opportunities practice; efforts are made to reflect diversity in the composition of the staff, governors and volunteers.

Thomas Buxton Primary School is fully committed to ensuring we are compliant with PSED. Please view our policies and procedures to see how we put that in practice.
