Equal Opportunity Policy/Procedures
I make sure that I promote equal opportunity practice for all children, treating all the children with equal concern and respect.
I value and respect the different religions, origins, cultures and languages so that each child is valued as an individual without racial or gender stereotyping. I will not discriminate against any child on the grounds of disability, class or family status.
I give opportunities for the children to learn about other people’s traditions and cultures; they have access to a range of books, puzzles, music toys etc., which provide a positive image, and diversity of life.
