At St Joseph’s we are committed to our Public Sector equality duty (PSED), whereby we must have due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010. We aim to ensure equality of opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers irrespective of race, gender, disability, belief, sexual orientation, age or socio economic background.
