Summerhill's Little Treasures is committed to taking positive and proactive steps to ensure that we provide a safe and caring environment, free from discrimination, for everyone in our community.

The setting's equal opportunities policies and procedures aim to help everyone involved, to counteract and eliminate both direct and indirect discrimination in decision making, employment practices and service provision and to ensure that our services strive to achieve equality of opportunity for all.

The setting aims to provide a welcoming and caring environment that promotes and reflects cultural and social diversity and is equally accessible to all. The setting will endeavor to challenge any offensive behaviour, language or attitudes with regards to race, ethnicity, nationality, class, religion, culture, gender, language, sexual orientation and disability.

The setting recognises that achieving the objectives of our equal opportunities policy relies on the active involvement of parents/carers, as set out in the Partnership with Parents/carers policy.

The setting will facilitate regular opportunities for consultation with parents/carers about the service that the setting provides, as a means of monitoring the effectiveness of the equal opportunities policy.
