GLF Schools

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Public Sector Equality Duty

Statement of Compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) 2012
Due regard for equalities


As a school we welcome our duties under the Equality Act (2010) that give legal protection from discrimination on the grounds of the following sets of characteristics:

  • Gender
  • Marital status and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy/Maternity
  • Transgender
  • Disability
  • Ethnicity
  • Age
  • Religion and Belief
  • Sexual Orientation

As a school we have a general duty to pay due regard to equality and to meet the three aims of the Equality Act which are to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

Having due regard for advancing equality involves:

  • Removing or minimising disadvantages suffered by people due to their protected characteristics.
  • Taking steps to meet the needs of people who share a protected characteristic where these are different from the needs of other people.
  • Encouraging people who share a protected characteristic to participate in public life or in other activities where their participation is disproportionately low.

Cordwalles Junior School is committed to removing discrimination, advancing equality of opportunity and fostering good relations, by integrating equality into the school's core priorities and functions.

Information to demonstrate compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty, including our Equality objectives, is published annually in our Equality Policy.  This is available on our website and directly from the school.
