Public Sector Equality Duty

What is Public Sector Equality Duty?
The public sector equality duty (PSED) requires schools to:
  1. Publish information to demonstrate how they are complying with the PSED – schools must update this published information at least every year 
  2. Prepare and publish equality objectives – schools must update these objectives at least once every 4 years

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.
