The public sector equality duty (PSED) requires schools to:
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.
At Fernwood our ethos is underpinned by ‘Care, Discipline and High Achievement’. Care is at the heart of our community underpinned by our fostering mutual respect, trust and understanding leading to positive and constructive relationships at all levels. Discipline is recognised as being necessary for all to reach their potential and the need for self-discipline is what we strive to achieve. Thus care and discipline underpins high achievement for all irrespective of a student or employees background. Our structure for delivery is underpinned by the Fernwood award.
Our school is committed to equality both as an employer and a service-provider and we carry out our day to day work through our embedded values:
We welcome our general duty under the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations, and our specific duties to publish information every year about our school population; to explain how we have due regard for equality; and to publish equality objectives which show how we plan to tackle particular inequalities, and reduce or remove them.
