Safeguarding Policy

Definition of Safeguarding Policy:

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility:

  • Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015) defines safeguarding and promoting welfare as:
  • 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

Our Aim:

  • This policy should be read in conjunction with Ealing Street Dance Academy policies related to Safeguarding (‘Anti – Bullying Behaviour,’ Attendance, ICT etc.), whose objectives are to effectively embed a culture where safeguarding is actively promoted.
  • Ealing Street Dance Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and requires all staff and volunteers to share that commitment.

Designated Safeguarding Lead:

  • Ms Ruth Kestenbaum

If the Designated Safeguarding Lead is unavailable, his/her duties will be carried out by the other Designated Deputy Safeguarding Lead.

Designated Deputy Safeguarding Lead:

  • Mrs Danielle Thompson
