The Lir Policies

Please find below all our policies relating to our activities.


Harassment and Bullyingclick to

At The Lir Academy, we are committed to providing a safe and respectful work environment for all - whether an employee, a student, a contractor, a supplier, or a member of the public.  No one has the right to harass anyone else, at work or in any situation related to employment.

Harassment is against the law.  It occurs where a person engages in unwanted conduct or language which has the purpose or effect of violating another’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for a colleague.  It may be related to age, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, race, disability, religion, nationality or any personal characteristic of the individual, and may be persistent or an isolated incident.  The key is that the actions or comments are viewed as demeaning and unacceptable to the recipient.  Remember that one person’s joke is another person’s harassment.

The Lir has made commitments to promote anti-racism, equity, and diversity across all the academy’s activities. To become an anti-racist organisation, The Lir will identify and implement initiatives across the entire range of the Academy’s activities: from staff and student recruitment, to reviewing and amending the content of curricula; from production choices, and the composition of creative teams, to putting structures in place which will respond appropriately to racist incidents as well as new processes to drive genuine cultural change across the Academy.
