Equality and Diversity Policy

Neil Bailey Swimming Ltd is committed to treating everyone equally with the context of their activity regardless of their age, level of ability or disability, gender (including gender reassignment), marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation of any other relevant characteristic.

Neil Bailey Swimming Ltd will ensue that equality is incorporated in all aspects of its activities and also recognises and adopts the principles of Sport England and the Swim England Equality & Diversity Policy (www.swimming.org/swimengland)

Staff at Neil Bailey Swimming Ltd have a responsibility not only to behave equitably themselves but they must also play an important role in promoting equitable behaviour amongst other participants of the lessons and in selecting appropriate ways of dealing with inequitable behaviour that may arise during the lessons.

It is the parent or carer’s responsibility to notify Neil Bailey Swimming Ltd of any issues that may be a barrier to a child or young person learning to swim. Any swimmers with medical conditions are made known to the staff at the beginning of each term. The staff will work together to devise a suitable programme that is achievable and challenging but also reflects the swimmer’s abilities. Additional support either in pool or poolside will be provided when necessary and reviewed each term.

Neil Bailey Swimming Ltd will deal with any incidence of discriminatory behaviour seriously, according to swim school disciplinary procedures.
