We at The Kids’ Club including The Little Kids’ Club believe that no child, young person, individual or family should be excluded from the Club’s activities on grounds of age, gender, sexuality, class, family status, means, disability, colour, ethnic origin, culture, religion or belief.
The Kids’ Club including The Little Kids’ Club adheres to the UNCRC, The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and this policy supports Articles: 2, 3, 14, 23, 30. Please see on the notice board and in the policy file for more information.
We aim to ensure that all who wish to work, or volunteer to help, within our Clubs have an equal opportunity to do so.
We will ensure that our services are fully inclusive in meeting the needs of all children and young people.
We recognise that children, young people and their families come from diverse backgrounds and diverse family structures.
All families have needs and values that arise from their social and economic, ethnic and cultural or religious backgrounds.
Some children and young people have needs that arise from disability or impairment or may have parents/carers that are affected by disability or impairment.
Some children and young people come from families who experience social exclusion or severe hardship.
Some have to face discrimination and prejudice because of their ethnicity, the languages they speak, their religious or belief background, their gender or their impairment.
We understand that these factors affect the well-being of children and young people and can impact on their wellbeing and their experience within the Clubs.
Our settings are committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all children, young people and their families/carers.
We are committed to creating an environment where each child and young person feels a sense of belonging.
Playworkers stand up and protect play and a child’s right to play.
All children need to play, the impulse is innate.
Our Clubs are as accessible as possible for all visitors and service users. If access to the settings is found to treat children or adults with a disability less favourably then we will endeavour to make reasonable adjustments, where possible, to accommodate the needs of these children and adults.
