Croftlands Junior School

Equality Duty

Statement of compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) 2021

Due regard for equalities

As a school, we welcome our duties under the Equality Act 2010 that give legal protection from discrimination on the grounds of the following sets of characteristics:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Ethnicity
  • Gender
  • Marital status and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy/Maternity
  • Religion and belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Transgender

As a school, we have a general duty to pay due regard to equality and to meet the three aims of the Equality Act, which are to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not

Having due regard for advancing equality involves

  • Removing or minimising disadvantages suffered by people due to their protected characteristics
  • Taking steps to meet the needs of people who share a protected characteristic where these are different from the needs of other people
  • Encouraging people who share a protected characteristic to participate in public life or in other activities where their participation is disproportionately low


Croftlands Junior School is committed to removing discrimination, advancing equality of opportunity and fostering good relations, by integrating equality into the school's core priorities and functions.
