The Learning Tree has always been committed to an Equal Opportunities and Valuing Diversity policy.
The aim of our policy is to ensure that no person, whether a child, a parent/carer, an employee – including prospective children, parents and employees – receives less favourable treatment by reason of their gender, race, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, religion or age.
In the case of employees, it is our policy that they will not be disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable in terms of the safe and effective performance of their job.
Our staff are required to agree to adhere to our Equal Opportunities and Valuing Diversity Policy and apply this at all times in respect of their employment and in their attitude to children, parents/carers and colleagues, with no gender or racial stereotyping, adhering through good practice and by setting a good example to the children.
This will apply to the activities chosen and to the resources used at the Learning Tree, in which we will do our best to reflect and value the different cultures of our society and to respect the diversity of the community.
