Shobnall Primary School is committed to equalities – treating people fairly. We strongly value diversity and celebrate people’s differences.
We are committed to the elimination of harassment, discrimination and prejudice experienced by individuals and groups, including (but not exclusively) on the grounds of age, pregnancy, belief or lack of religious belief, sexual orientation, sex, race including colour, nationality, ethnic or natural origin, disability, being pregnant or having a child, being married or in a civil partnership and being or becoming a transsexual person.
The Public Sector Equality Duty
The Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) is a duty placed on public bodies. As a school, we are a public body. The PSED requires us to have due regard and the need to:
– Eliminate unlawful discrimination;
– Advance equality of opportunity;
– Foster good relations.
The PSED is about transparency and accountability in decision making and about considering how different people will be affected by activities.
