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.
These are our objectives for 2018/2019
1. To promote cultural understanding and awareness of different religious beliefs between different ethnic groups within our school community.
2. To monitor and promote the involvement of all groups of students in the extra-curricular life of the school, including leadership opportunities, especially students with special educational needs.
3. To close gaps in attainment and achievement between students and all groups of students; especially boys and girls, students eligible for free-school meals, students with special educational needs and disabilities, looked after children and students from different heritage groups.
4. To further improve accessibility across the school for students, staff and visitors with disabilities, including access to specialist teaching areas.
5. To endeavour to ensure that the staff and governing body and representation of staff in leadership roles is reflective of the local community.
6. To reduce the incidence of the use of homophobic, sexist and racist language by students in the school.
Manorfield 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.
