Public Sector Equality Duty
The Single Equality Act, which came into place October 1st 2010 brought together the duties that are already set out in our Race, Disability and Gender policies into one single Equality Duty. This policy has been written to bring together and harmonise those three policies. The Single Equality Act combines the existing three duties into one new equality Duty that covers all seven of the equality strands: age, gender, disability, gender-identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.
In Gorsewood Primary School, we will ensure that at every level, in all our work and throughout all aspects of the school community and its life, all will be treated equally. We are committed to valuing diversity by providing equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice for all school stakeholders.
