LEYF Gender Pay Gap Report 2018

Under the new legislation which came into force in April 2017 UK, employers with 250 or more employees must report whether they have a gender pay gap in their company. Each company must report using its own calculation which reflects the workforce. For example, LEYF is a childcare organisation which would mean that traditionally most LEYF teachers are women paid sector rates reflecting their experience and qualifications. Although, we have campaigned for and continue to actively recruit more male teachers to work in childcare to address that gender imbalance. In Central Office (COT) we have a more even balance of men and women employees, although it’s important to note that the COT support roles are varied and specific including finance, HR, marketing, operations and IT. COT staff are remunerated within sector appropriate reflecting their experience. Our CEO is female. Read More.

Inclusion and Diversity Policy

“At London Early Years Foundation (LEYF), we care committed to building fairer and more inclusive workplaces. People matter and organisations must ensure their approach to people management does not put any individual or group at a disadvantage. Regardless of our identity or background, we all deserve the opportunity to develop our skills and talents to our full potential; to work in a safe, supportive and inclusive environment; to be fairly rewarded and recognised for our work; and to have a meaningful voice on matters that affect us.

Diversity is also vital for the sustainability of businesses and economies. At LEYF we embrace and value the diversity of thought, ideas and ways of working that people from different backgrounds, experiences and identities bring to an organisation. Diversity helps people grow and learn; tackles under-utilisation of skills by enabling people to reach their full potential; improves decision-making; boosts engagement and innovation – and enables businesses to meet the needs of diverse groups better.

At LEYF, we’re all proud of the fact we are a diverse and inclusive workforce”.
