The public sector equality duty (PSED) requires schools to prepare and publish equality objectives at least once every four years. The PSED was introduced by the Equality Act 2010 and applies to all schools, including maintained schools, academies, independent schools, maintained nursery schools, and maintained and non-maintained special schools.
Hassocks Infant School is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout the school community.
To achieve this, our equality objectives are as follows:
- Ensuring that all pupils and staff are encouraged and able to achieve their full potential;
- Ensuring that every pupil is helped to develop a sense of personal and cultural identity that is confident and open to change, and receptive and respectful to other identities;
- Ensuring that every pupil is encouraged to develop the knowledge, understandings and skills that they need in order to participate in Britain’s multi-ethnic society, and in the wider context of an independent world;
- Opposing all forms of racism and xenophobia, including those forms that are directed towards religious groups and communities
Further information about our compliance with the public sector equality duty can be found in our policy which can be downloaded below.
