Equality policy

The ‘Equality Policy and Guidance for Schools’ document produced by Devon County Council enables leaders to ensure that they meet the public sector equality duty of 2010 with confidence. It is practical and concise and supports boards and schools with:

  • a model policy and list of duties for the school to personalise and adopt
  • some examples of equality objectives for the setting to personalise
  • a checklist for auditing practice.

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 Policy and Guidance for Schools is available via the Devon Education Services shop (free of charge for Devon maintained schools and Devon academies).
