Our aim is that all our policies, practices and services are inclusive.
We used the Equality Challenge Unit’s guidance on Student pregnancy and maternity: implications for higher education institutions to review our approaches.
We have well-established occupational policies and practices to support staff in pregnancy and in their return to work.
The University runs a purpose-built day nursery on the College Lane campus for the children of University students and staff aged between 3 months and 5 years. We have on-campus facilities for breast–feeding.
We keep our arrangements under review and include consideration of pregnancy and maternity in assessing the impact on equality of our policies, facilities and services.
