Safeguarding is viewed by most as the number one overriding principle of Playscheme. In everything we do the safety and security of children absolutely HAS to be paramount. We go to extensive lengths to train and vet our staff and are a registered body under the DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) through whom we check all eligible staff on a regular basis. All people on site are required to wear identification badges and all visitors must be signed in and accompanied.
All our staff are briefed in Safeguarding and Health & Safety and we have a large number of staff trained in First Aid (far exceeding our legal obligations). Alongside this we have an excellent Welfare team catering for all children and not just those with additional needs. Most of our senior staff are full time child care workers and/or teachers bringing with them a wealth of knowledge and training.
