We are committed to ensuring that our service is fully inclusive in meeting the needs of all children.
We recognise that children and their families come from a wide range of backgrounds with individual needs, beliefs and values. They may grow up in family structures that include one or two parents of the same or different sex. Children may have close links or live with extended families of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins; while other children may be more removed from close kin or may live with other relatives or foster carers. Some children come from families who experience social exclusion, severe hardship; discrimination and prejudice because of their ethnicity, disability and/or ability, the languages they speak, their religious or personal beliefs, their sexual orientation and marital status. Some individuals face discrimination linked to their gender and some women are discriminated against because of their pregnancy and maternity status. We understand that all these factors can affect the well-being of children within these families and may adversely impact on children’s learning, attainment, and life outcomes.
We are committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all children and families using our setting.
We aim to:
promote equality and value diversity within our service and foster good relations with the local community.
actively include all families and value the positive contribution they make to our service.
promote a positive non-stereotyping environment that promotes dignity, respect and understanding of difference in all forms.
provide a secure and accessible environment in which every child feels safe and equally included.
improve our knowledge and understanding of issues relating to anti-discriminatory practice,
challenge and eliminate discriminatory actions based on a protected characteristic as defined by the Equality Act (2010) namely:
age, gender, gender reassignment, marital status, pregnancy and maternity, race, disability, sexual orientation; and religion or belief.
where possible, take positive action to benefit groups or individuals with protected characteristics who are disadvantaged, have a disproportional representation within the service or need different things from the service.
