LAB Safeguarding Policy

All of our teachers require an up to date DBS in order to work with us and we are fully committed to working with schools in order to keep children safe. Our staff will work with the school's designated Safeguarding leads to ensure best practice is being followed and any reporting that may be necessary is directed to the correct person within the school. 

 

LAB 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 school requirements. 

 

The policy recognises 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 sport at LAB in a safe and child centred environment

  • are protected from abuse whilst participating in [the activity provided by the organisation] or outside of the activity.

[Insert name of organisation] acknowledges that some children, including disabled children and young people or those from ethnic minority communities, 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 LAB Theatre Company 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 LAB Theatre Company. Failure to comply with the policy and procedures will be addressed without delay and may ultimately result in dismissal/exclusion from the organisation.
