This Behaviour Policy meets the requirements of the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) by including the actions taken to penalise bullying that is inflicted on the grounds of race, gender, disability and other characteristics (such as sexual orientation) and it does not include rules, penalties or punishments that would disproportionately affect a particular group

Records of behaviour incidents are regularly monitored to identify if there are any patterns that suggest the Behaviour Policy unintentionally discriminates against a certain group.

If the school finds that a particular group of pupils, for example those with special educational needs, is more affected by the policy than other groups, the policy will be reviewed.
