Equality Public Sector Duty
Equality Objectives 2020/2021
NOTE: The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011 require Governing Bodies to
publish equality objectives at intervals of no more than four years but Frogmore Infant School
will publish detail on progress towards these objectives on an annual basis and is committed
to publishing this detail on our website.
We recognise that the public-sector equality duty has three aims:
- To eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct under the Act
- To advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
- To foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
We have considered how well we currently achieve these aims with regard to the protected groups under the Equality Act (race, disability, gender, gender re-assignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, sexual orientation, religion and belief and sexual orientation).
Having referred to and analysed our equality information, we have set ourselves the following
Objective 1: To ensure equal access by all pupils to remote learning/ home learning.
Objective 2: To extend the range of books in the school library to reflect a greater diversity of texts.
Objective 3: Train all members of staff and governors involved in recruitment and selection on equal opportunities and non-discrimination by the beginning of the next calendar year. Training evaluation data will show that 100% of those attending have a good understanding of the legal requirements.
