For more information on the Equality Act , refer to the guidance for schools produced by the Department for Education. Much harmful discriminatory behaviour, such as bullying, comes from a lack of understanding for diverse cultures, lifestyles, beliefs and differences between individuals. Educating young people about identities, diversity, equality and human rights helps them learn to respect, celebrate difference and help tackle prejudice and discrimination.
It is also important that they are aware of the laws that protect them from discrimination, and know how to speak out on issues of concern or how to get help so that every student has equal opportunity to reach their potential and make the most of their lives. The Act also includes provisions for positive action, which enables schools to provide additional benefits to some students to address disadvantage, where it is established that individuals with protected characteristics suffer disadvantage, have different needs or have low participation.
It would be positive action to encourage girls to take more science subjects where it was established that they were underrepresented.

It will also be used to support the new Ofsted inspection framework for schools which includes consideration of pupils acting safely and feeling safe and free from bullying. The Equality Act deals with the way in which schools treat their pupils and prospective pupils but the relationship between one pupil and another is not within its scope. Therefore, a school would not be conducting unlawful discrimination if one pupil bullied another pupil because they were gay.
However, if a school did not treat homophobic bullying as seriously as bullying which relates to other protected characteristics, then it may be guilty of unlawful discrimination under the Equality Act.
