DURING SESSIONS

Lanyard badgeOur leadership team can be identified by their orange t-shirts, whilst parent helpers wear orange badges.Lanyard badge visitor Visitors are asked to sign in and are issued with pink badges. Unless you have signed in, you are not permitted past our reception area.

We maintain a minimum ratio of 1 adult to 8 young people at all times. Obviously this takes a lot of volunteers so if you feel you could help, even on an occasional basis, we would love to hear from you.

All adults have DBS (police) checks.

SAFEGUARDING TEAM

All adults complete Generalist Safeguarding Training which is regularly updated. Safeguarding briefings and updates are provided by the Youth Leader once a week via email.

The Designated Safeguarding Leads complete detailed training and are appointed to take lead responsibility for child protection issues at the club.

MENTAL HEALTH

We take mental health and wellbeing seriously. Roy Peach is a qualified Mental Health First Aider and Alfie Appleton is trained in supporting young people with mental health concerns.


FIRE SAFETY

The club has a full working alarm system with call points and fire extinguishers throughout. To comply with the law, we hold Fire Drills a minimum of three times per year.

BUILDING AND EQUIPMENT

Regular checks on the building and equipment are carried out weekly before sessions and throughout the year by those with an eye for maintenance. Our Health and Safety Representative is the Chair of Trustees. The Youth Leader produces a comprehensive buildings and equipment checklist detailing tasks requiring attention.
