We welcome visitors and volunteers to our children’s activities and to our centre. We are committed to the safeguarding of all our children and all staff, visitors and volunteers have a shared responsibility for this.

In line with statutory guidelines, we do have strict procedures to ensure the safety of children and we ask that you please adhere to these.

Ahead of your visit, please read and familiarise yourself with our Health & Safety Leaflet, our Visitor & Volunteer agreement, and our Safeguarding Policy below:

On Arrival

You will be required to sign in at the office on our recording system.

All visitors will be asked to provide photo identification and your enhanced DBS certificate (if applicable) on your first visit.

Depending on the reason for your visit and the safeguarding checks the office team are able to carry out, you will be provided with a red lanyard. You must wear this at all times whilst in our centre.

When you leave the centre, you must report to the office and sign out in the record book so we know that you’re no longer in the building. You must return your lanyard to the office staff and exit via the entrance doors.

In the interest of safeguarding, we ask you to ensure to adhere to the following instructions:

  • Switch off your mobile phone / device and store in your bag.
  • If you do need to use your mobile phone or camera enabled device, please speak with a member of staff before doing so.
  • Do not take pictures, videos or sound recordings of any child unless you have sought permission from a senior staff.
  • If you are working with a child, please ensure the lead staff is aware of this, where you are working and approximately how long for.
  • If you are working with a child, please do so in a space that is open, have an open door or be visible by others through a window.
  • If you have a concern about a child please pass this on to the lead staff, who will then follow our safeguarding procedures. If they are not available, please speak to our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).
  • If you have a concern about another adult in the centre, please ask to speak to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads.
  • Always share concerns with staff, no matter how small they may appear, and don’t keep them to yourself
  • If a child says something to you that you think could be a safeguarding concern, act as above, and if possible write down what was said immediately. Listen to the child, do not question them or promise them that it will remain confidential between the two of you.
