Equal Opportunities
 
"I will ensure that I actively promote equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practices for all children. I will make sure that I treat all children with equal concern and respect."
 
I recognise and welcome all legislation and existing codes of practice, produced by appropriate commissions.
 
I value and respect the different origin, religion, culture and languages in a multi ethnic society so that each child is valued as an individual without racial or gender stereotyping. I will also not discriminate against children on the grounds of disability, sexual orientation, age, class, family status and HIV/Aids status.
 
I provide equal chances for each child to learn and develop to their full potential, taking into account each child’s age and stage of development, gender, ethnicity, home language and ability.
 
I provide and make sure that all children have access to a range of books and puzzles and other toys which provide positive images and examples of the diversity of life in our society.
 
I challenge racist and discriminatory remarks, attitudes and behaviour from the children in my care and adults.
 
I will always help children to feel good about themselves and others by celebrating the differences which make us all unique individuals.
