Child Protection Safeguarding Policy

Next Generation Dance Studio aims to provide a happy and safe environment where children can learn to dance free from harm and at ease in the Dance Studios.

NGDS believes children have the right to be safe and secure and free from threat, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexuality or religious or personal beliefs or social background.

NGDS will act with integrity adhering to the Full Child Protection Policy kept upon the premises, treating children with respect, listening to their concerns and acting upon them.

NGDS will provide commitment to Students and Parents ensuring that pupils will receive professional tuition from an I.S.T.D qualified teacher or other affiliated organisation with appropriate facilities following safe practice in all our Policies.

NGDS follow the BOPA guidelines during all rehearsals and shows. Teachers and Chaperones are KCC registered. Teachers are trained in Health & Safety, Life Span & Child Development, First Aid, Child Protection and are DBS checked. Each venue is risk assessed, and all staff/chaperones are made aware of Fire Evacuation Procedures.

The full Child ISTD Protection policy is available to see at any time at Next Generation Dance Studio.  Please ask a member of staff.
