Equal Opportunities and Inclusion

We value each child as an individual regardless of colour, creed, religion, ability, gender or home background, paying particular regard to the Special educational Needs and disability (SEND) code of practice June 2014.

We value parents/carer’s as prime educators of their children and would seek continual parental help and involvement in keeping the communication channels open, enabling us to offer the best care possible for all users and to enable us to address any issues or difficulties as they arise.
Our aim is to meet all the requirements as set out in the EYFS framework and the SEND Code of Practice.

The EYFS seeks to provide:
‘Equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported.’ EYFS

Procedure
We aim to work closely with children, parents and outside agencies ensuring that all the children feel special and that they are all treated equally, whilst appreciating that we are all different. This will be evident in all areas of planning and reviewing of individual play and learning activities. Evidence will be ongoing through the children’s individual ‘Learning Journey’s’ or ‘Early years support and achievement play plan’ (SAPP) where appropriate.

In an ever-changing world we promote respect for each other’s cultures and beliefs. All staff regularly attend training opportunities that relate to and include equal opportunities, diversity and Fundamental British Values.
We aim to reflect and celebrate the richness and diversity of ourselves and family life, enabling all children and their parent/carer’s voices to be heard.
