Accessibility Strategy for Disabled Pupils 2015-2018

The General Public Sector Duty of the Equality Act 2010 requires public authorities, in the exercise of their functions and decisions, to have due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
  • Foster good relations between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.

The Equality Act 2010 identifies nine “protected” characteristics that are subject to its general duty. They are as follows: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race (ethnicity), religion, sex (gender) and sexual orientation.

This strategy sets out how St.Helens Council meets a specific requirement under Section 10 of the Equality Act 2010, which relates to accessibility of schools for disabled pupils
