Tywyn Primary School v Aplin  UKEAT 0298/17
Dismissal of gay head teacher was discriminatory on grounds of sexual orientation
This case concerns the dismissal of an openly gay head teacher.
Under section 13 of the Equality Act 2010 direct discrimination occurs when:
‘A person (A) discriminates against another (B) if, because of [his sexual orientation] A treats B less favourably than A treats or would treat others’.
Mr Aplin met two 17-year-old males on the dating app Grindr and the three of them had sex.
