SAFEGUARDING POLICY 

Definition of Safeguarding Policy:
  • Working Together to Safeguard Children 

  • Protecting children from maltreatment

  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development

  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care

  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances to enter adulthood successfully.

SOC!ETY DANCE ACADEMY  acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and is committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, government guidance and complies with best practice and "Keeping Children Safe In Education" (KCSIE, 2016) requirements.

 

The policy recognizes that the welfare and interests of children are paramount in all circumstances. It aims to ensure that regardless of  age, ability or disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation, socio-economic background, all children

 

  • have a positive and enjoyable experience of dance classes at [SOC!ETY DANCE ACADEMY] in a safe and child centered environment

  • are protected from abuse whilst participating in dance classes or outside of the activity.

SOC!ETY DANCE ACADEMY acknowledges that some children, including disabled children and young people can be particularly vulnerable to abuse and we accept the responsibility to take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure their welfare.  

 

As part of our safeguarding policy SOC!ETY DANCE ACADEMY will

  • promote and prioritise the safety and wellbeing of children and young people

  • ensure everyone understands their roles and responsibilities in respect of safeguarding and is provided with appropriate learning opportunities to recognise, identify and respond to signs of abuse, neglect and other safeguarding concerns relating to children and young people

  • ensure appropriate action is taken in the event of incidents/concerns of abuse and support provided to the individual/s who raise or disclose the concern

  • ensure that confidential, detailed and accurate records of all safeguarding concerns are maintained and securely stored

  • prevent the employment/deployment of unsuitable individuals

  • ensure robust safeguarding arrangements and procedures are in operation.

The policy and procedures will be widely promoted and are mandatory for everyone involved in SOC!ETY DANCE ACADEMY and all mentors and teachers are required to complete an online safeguarding course which they will receive a level 1 safeguarding young people certificate. 

Every young person deserve the chance to be creative and reach their highest potential in safe environment .
