Child Protection/Safeguarding children
The purpose of Southeast Kids Camps children and young people’s programme is to offer the children a safe and welcoming environment with fun activities where the children can grow and learn. Whether this be through Southeast Kids Camps
The Southeast Kids Camps values young people and children as being a vital part of the organisation and desires to see them grow, mature and be challenged in a healthy and safe environment.
The club will appoint a member of staff as the Safeguarding Children/Child Protection Officer. This Officer will have suitable experience, training and expertise, and will be responsible for liaising with social services, Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) and Ofsted in any child protection matter. and Ofsted in any child protection matter. If the designated person is unavailable, the Person in Charge must be contacted
The setting’s procedures also comply with other guidance (for example, ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children) or advice from the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) formerly known as the Area Child Protection Committees (ACPC).
The club is committed to reviewing its Safeguarding Children/Child Protection policy and procedures at regular intervals. The policy and its procedures will be shared with parents/carers during their child’s settling in period.
South East Kids Camps are registered with Ofsted.
All staff understand the setting’s child protection procedures and have had appropriate training and guidance in the principles of safe caring. To this end:
• Every effort will be made to avoid instances when members of staff, students, volunteers or parents are left alone with a child other than their own, for their own protection and that of children and young people. There will be 2 adults at all times with children. In an extreme case or emergency where a member of staff is alone with a child, the door of the room should be kept open and another member of staff should be informed.
• If a child makes inappropriate physical contact with a member of staff, students or volunteer, this will be recorded fully in the Incident Record Book.
• Staff will never carry out a personal task for children that they can do for themselves. Where this is essential, staff will help a child whilst being accompanied by a colleague. Unless a child has a particular need, staff should not accompany children into the toilet. Staff are aware that this and other similar activities could be misconstrued.
• Staff will be mindful of how and where they touch children, given their age and emotional understanding.
• Unnecessary or potentially inappropriate physical contact will be avoided at all times.
• All allegations made by a child against a member of staff will be fully and accurately recorded, including any actions taken, in the Incident Record Book. In the event of there being a witness to an incident, they should sign the records to confirm this.
• Avoid shouting and derogatory comments
• Use positive comments and feedback whenever possible
• Not use a mobile phone or camera whilst leading a session with a group of children and this will be treated as a case of misconduct if the staff member is caught doing so
