It is the policy of Make Play Connect Limited that the welfare of the child, young person and vulnerable adult is paramount regardless of age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs, class or sexual identity.
Make Play Connect will prioritize the welfare of all children who use the venue, by ensuring that all employees and volunteers are clear of their responsibilities in respect of child protection.
Make Play Connect staff and volunteers have a responsibility to report any concerns of child abuse to a senior staff member without delay.
Management of Staff and Volunteers
It is very important that each member of staff and each volunteer is aware of the Child Protection Policy and trained accordingly.
Responsibilities within the Child Protection Policy
All staff and volunteers working independently with young or vulnerable people have a Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and uphold the Code of Good Practice.
In cases where there is an allegation or suspicion of child abuse, the senior member of staff will take steps immediately to ensure that no child or adult is placed in a position which could cause further compromise.
Code of Behavior
The Code of Behaviour outlined here is a general outline for all staff and volunteers.
Unless approval has been granted no photography is allowed during children’s theatre, workshops, or music performances.
Signs to this effect are clearly visible to communicate this.
Where permission has been granted, any images containing children must be signed in writing by each child’s parent or guardian.
