Safeguarding & Child Protection
At Trinity Laban, we are committed to the protection of children and young people, and consider the safeguarding and promotion of their learning and wellbeing to be of paramount concern.
We are determined that all of our younger students (under 18) enjoy learning in a safe environment and consider it the duty of all those we employ to work with them to actively prevent any physical, emotional, neglectful or sexual abuse and to protect and promote their general welfare and wellbeing.
It is the policy of Trinity Laban that all of our Learning & Participation staff and Designated Safeguarding Officers must adhere to our guidelines and respond appropriately to concerns, allegations or disclosures of abuse and harm.
Our Lead Designated Safeguarding Officer, and the individual with Safeguarding/Child Protection responsibilities at senior management level is Jonathan Peel, Director of Strategy & Business Operations, tel: 020 8305 4372, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The following documents outline our policies and procedures
All employees who come into regular contact with children and young people will be subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check that includes a Children’s Barred List check in order to work at Trinity Laban. Everyone in this category must have a valid DBS check validated within the last three years. We re-check status every three years.
All of our Designated Safeguarding Officers receive Advanced Safeguarding and Child Protection training every two years. All other staff working with children and young people receive level 2 equivalent training via an on-line training package. It is a condition of employment that they undertake this every three years.
