Here is the new ‘Equality Policy and Guidance for Schools’ document produced by Babcock LDP on behalf of Devon County Council which will enable governors and senior leaders to ensure that they meet the public sector equality duty of 2010 with confidence.
It is practical and concise and is set out in five parts including:
- a model policy and list of duties for the school to personalise and adopt
- some example equality objectives for inclusion in the school improvement plan
- a checklist for auditing practice
- a simple flow chart outlining the all key activities needed to meet the duty
This is provided to schools in the format of a Word document as it is essential that schools do not just adopt the policy as it is but consider it carefully and add in their own context and details.
The Equality and Policy and Guidance for Schools is available free of charge for Devon maintained schools whilst other schools and academies may purchase a subscription to access this information for £25 + VAT.
The document has restricted access. Please login to the site using the tab on the menu at the top of the screen and navigate back to this page. Once you have logged in, the document will be available at the bottom of this page for you to download.
