Equality Objectives & Accessibility Plan
Background: The Public Sector Equality Duty 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.
The public sector equality duty (PSED) requires schools to publish information to demonstrate how they are complying with the PSED – we do this by publishing Equality Information, and by preparing and publishing equality objectives, which schools must update at least once every 4 years. Our Equalities Information and Objectives document is available to view and download below:
Schools must also have an up to date accessibility plan that has been approved by the governing body. The plan must help schools:
- Do all they can to support disabled pupils to access and participate in the curriculum
- Improve the physical environment to enable disabled pupils to take better advantage of the education, benefits, facilities and services provided
- Make all disabled pupils aware of accessibility plans and information
Lindhead School's Accessibility Plan is closely linked to our Equality Information. The plan is available to view and download below:
