Single equality scheme consultation – Stage two

Date: 18 Dec 2009

HMI: 090308

Publisher: Ofsted


Ofsted is preparing its first single equality scheme to replace its existing three separate schemes (disability equality, race equality, gender equality).

This is the second stage of the consultation, the first stage identified the priority equality objectives which have shaped the scheme so far.

Your responses to this consultation will help us to define not only our equality priorities but also the key activities for achieving our priorities. Our single equality scheme will be published, along with a detailed action plan, in April 2010.

We ask for feedback in particular on:

  • our approach to embedding equality
  • our equality priorities
  • our planned activities.

Before responding to this consultation, you may find it useful to look at our website to see the kind of work we do.

The closing date for the consultation is 12 March 2010.
