What is the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED)?
The PSED was introduced by the Equality Act 2010 and applies to all schools, including maintained and independent schools, academies, maintained nursery schools, and maintained and non-maintained special schools.
The PSED has 3 main elements
- Eliminating discrimination and other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
- Advancing equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
- Fostering good relations across all characteristics – between people who do share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
At Carrington Infant School we uphold the Equality Act 2010 - please refer to our Equality and Diversity Policy within our Policy Section which is reviewed annually.
