Public Sector Equality Duty

At Brampton Primary Academy we aim to meet our obligations under the public sector equality duty by having due regard for the need to:

  • Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Equality Act 2010

  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it

  • Foster good relations across all characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it 


What is the Public Sector Equality Duty

The Public Sector Equality Duty requires public bodies to promote equality.  The relevant protected characteristics are:

  • age

  • disability

  • gender reassignment

  • pregnancy and maternity

  • race

  • religion or belief

  • sex

  • sexual orientation

Roles and responsibilities

The governing board will:

  • Ensure that the equality information and objectives are published and communicated throughout the school, including to staff, pupils and parents

  • Delegate responsibility for monitoring the achievement of the objectives on a daily basis to the headteacher

The SLT will:

Brampton Primary Academy prides itself on being an inclusive school that cares for every individual pupil.
