Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED)
The PSED is a duty on public authorities (including schools) to consciously consider how their policies or decisions affect people who share protected characteristics.
Protected characteristics are:
- Gender reassignment
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Religion or belief
- Sex and sexual orientation
We give due regard across all the characteristics to:
- Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation or any other unlawful conduct in the Equality Act 2010.
- Advance equality of opportunity
- Foster good relations
For further information on how we comply with the above, please refer to our Equality Policy and Objectives.
