Inclusive education for all children

In the Early Years Foundation Stage the diversity of individuals and communities is valued and respected. No child or family is discriminated against. In practice this means that children should be treated fairly regardless of race, religion or their abilities. It is based on the premise that all children are entitled to enjoy a full life in conditions which will help them take part in society and develop as an individual, with their own cultural and spiritual beliefs. This encourages children to recognise their own unique qualities and the characteristics they share with other children and actively promotes equal opportunities and anti-discriminatory practice, so that all children and families feel included, safe and valued. This includes listening to families and taking part in sensitive two-way exchanges of information. Where appropriate, it is knowing when and how to call in specialist help as early as possible.
