The Equality Duty


Schools, colleges and education settings can find information and resources, including links to DfE guidance to support provision during the Covid-19 pandemic.

East Sussex County Council are reviewing Czone and the Virtual School Bag (VSB). To have your say, please complete the online survey. Closing date is 17 December.

2. What does my school need to do?

There are two specific duties with which your school has to comply:

  1. Publish information to show your compliance with the Equality Duty at least once a year.

  2. Set and publish specific measurable equality objectives at least every four years.

It is up to your school to decide what information you publish to show your compliance with the Equality Duty. There is no prescribed format. However publishing your school’s equality policy and objectives would meet both of the requirements above.

For full guidance on the Equality Duty and producing an equality policy for your school please download the guidance below.
