We have a comprehensive child protection policy, and trustees, steering group members, staff and regular volunteers all undergo enhanced CRB checks.
When children first come parents/carers are required to fill in a registration form so we are aware of children's medical needs, e.g. allergies, and so we can meet any first aid needs should they occur, as well as making any reasonable adjustments needed by children with disabilities. All parent/carers are required to provide an emergency contact number in the event of any problems.
Our Equal Opportunities policy ensures that everyone who comes into contact with us is treated fairly and has the maximum opportunity to flourish. We aim to promote equality of opportunity whatever a person's gender, race, ethnicity or nationality, disability, religious or non-religious belief or lack of it, sexual orientation, or age (although we do differentiate our groups by age range, like most educational establishments). We will endeavour to make reasonable adjustments to ensure accessibility for anyone, child or adult, with a disability.
Data provided to us by parents on our registration forms is held securely on site and is never shared with any third parties.
