Framwellgate Moor Primary school acknowledges its responsibilities under the public sector equality duty of the Equality Act 2010 from 1st October 2010.
The Act replaces and consolidates all existing equality legislation and enacts new duties under the school equality provision. The two new protected characteristics extended to pupils are pupils undergoing gender reassignment and those pupils who are pregnant or recently given birth.
The three general equality duties and two specific duties now cover all protected characteristics. School will no longer ask health related questions of job applicants prior to a conditional job offer.
We understand we are able to undertake ‘positive action’ in order to offer equality of opportunity to identified groups covered by protected characteristics. (i.e. specialised EAL withdrawal for new arrivals).
We will renew information at least annually and renew the equality objectives every four years.
We will have due regard, demonstrated by giving relevant and proportionate consideration to our public sector equality duty under the Act.
