Educational psychology: advice for parents

Equal opportunities

As a service we have agreed an equal opportunities policy and we are committed to the principles of equal opportunities:

  • We believe that all individuals share equal value.
  • We respect and value individual differences.
  • We recognise that in the community discrimination occurs in relation to race, social class, social and/or economic disadvantages, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity issues, age and religion.

These principles underpin our work. Through the development and review of our policy, organisation and practice, the Schools and Community Psychology Service is working towards ensuring that it delivers a service that is accessible and fair. It aims to be equally effective for all its clients, neither unfairly advantaging nor disadvantaging any individual or group in the community it serves.
