Legislation, participation, equal access and valuing and promoting cultural diversity. (1.1,1.2&1.3)
The current legislation and codes of practise that are relevant to the promotion of equality and diversity are:
United Nations convention on the rights of the child (1989) Disability discrimination act 1995
Disability discrimination act 2005
Special education needs and disability act 2001
Race relations (amendment) act 2000
Human rights act 1998
Children act 1989
Children act 2004
Education act 1996
Equality act 2010
It is very important to support the rights of all children and young people to participate in all activities and help promote equal access because under the convention on the rights of the child (1989) and the human rights act (1998) children have a right to education. This helps to raise achievement, closing the 'attainment gap' that exists between different groups within society. Promoting equality of access will help vulnerable groups to reach expected levels of achievement and will ensure that individuals, regardless of their background, race, culture, gender, additional needs or disability will achieve their full potential. Also participation in decision making enables children to develop a sense of ownership in their own learning and of the learning environment which will promote a sense of belonging and self-esteem. By acknowledging and reflecting diversity in teaching methods and resources, children will feel valued helping them to develop a self -identity, good self-esteem and positive self-identity increases children's confidence in themselves, raising their sense of well-being and achievements. The children or young people will feel motivated to learn because they have some control over what they are doing and the positive feelings that are associated with this. In my setting, we apply this method of teaching and promotions of diversity, equality and inclusion by ensuring all pupils, male or female, are participating in the same activities at the same time, this helps promote the idea that all of the children and young people are able to complete an activity or play the same game regardless of gender stereotypes, with some adaptations made for specific students in my class to allow them access to play and work activities if they are in wheelchairs...
