Child Protection Policy

ACTIVATE (Performing Arts) believe that it is always unacceptable for a child or young person to experience abuse of any
kind and recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people, by a commitment to practice
which protects them.

We recognise that:
* The welfare of the child/young person is paramount

* All children regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse

*    Working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and other agencies is essential in promoting young people’s welfare.

The purpose of the policy:
* To provide protection for the children and young people who receive ACTIVATE's services, including the children of adult members or users.
* To provide staff and volunteers with guidance on procedures they should adopt in the event that they suspect a child or young person may be experiencing, or be at risk of, harm.

This policy applies to all staff, including the Proprietor (Clare-Louise Edwards), paid staff, volunteers and sessional workers, agency staff, students or anyone working on behalf of ACTIVATE.

We will endeavour to safeguard children and young people by:
*    valuing them, listening to and respecting them
*    adopting child protection guidelines through procedures and a code of conduct for staff and volunteers
*    recruiting staff and volunteers safely ensuring all necessary checks are made
*    sharing information about child protection and good practice with children, parents, staff and volunteers
*    sharing information about concerns with agencies who need to know, and involving parents and children appropriately
*    providing effective management for staff and volunteers through supervision, support and training.

We are also committed to reviewing our policy and good practice annually.
