Skool Is Out has a Child Protection Policy which is available to view within our policies and procedures at our venues or can be viewed on our website.
The Childcare Managers of Skool Is Out @ Barclay Viewforth and Skool Is Out @ Bruntsfield are the Child Protection officers for Skool Is Out Ltd. The Senior Practitioner Playworker on duty (or the Administration Manager in the event of their absence) is acting Child Protection officer in the absence of the Manager.
CHILD PROTECTION TRAINING FOR STAFF
All staff employed by Skool Is Out Ltd will receive annual Child Protection Training carried out by an accredited provider, and in-house staff training on Child Protection for all new staff who join our company.
GIVING COMFORT TO YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN
In accordance with Child Protection guidelines, Skool Is Out staff may give comfort to child/ren if they are distressed or may have to lift a child if they have fallen over or have been injured in any way that might make walking painful. Comfort might take the form of a child wanting a hug from one of the staff; holding a hand; or an arm outstretched to reassure a child. Skool Is Out staff will not give a child a hug if they do not want it. Skool Is Out staff will discourage children from sitting on their knees and bring a chair close so the child can still be near them.
