Safeguarding policy

The Youth Ballet Academy recognises the need to safeguard their students at all times when they are in their care. We comply with all regulations regarding child welfare and safeguarding.

All teachers have an enhanced DRB check. If a guest teacher does not have this check in place, they will be supervised and not left unattended with children. A licensed chaperone will be in attendance during all Youth Ballet Academy Courses.

A qualified First Aider will be in attendance at all courses, rehearsals and performances.

No photographs can be taken by the press or parents without permission first being sought.

The Youth Ballet Academy has a Child Protection Policy document which is available for inspection if required.

A register of all students, together with emergency contact details for them will be maintained and held for the full duration of a Youth Ballet Academy Course.
