Safeguarding Students at Arts and Media Islington

Arts and Media Islington is committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for children / young people. 

We do this by: 

  • Recognising that all children have the right to freedom from abuse and harm 
  • Ensuring that all our staff and volunteers are carefully selected and vetted, have the relevant qualifications and experience, and accept responsibility for helping to prevent the abuse of children in their care 
  • Responding quickly and appropriately to all suspicions or allegations of abuse 
  • Providing parents / carers, children / young people with the opportunity to voice any concerns they may have 
  • Adopting disciplinary measures and sanctions which are non-violent and do not impose humiliation 
  • Appointing a Named Child Protection Officer who takes specific responsibility for children’s and young people’s protection, safety and well-being 
  • Reviewing the effectiveness of the organisations’ Child Protection Policy and Procedures 
  • Working with external organisations, for example, Children’s Social Services, police, to ensure, as far as is possible, that children / young people are protected 
  • Not tolerating bullying. Incidents of bullying will be investigated and treated seriously. Action will be taken to stop the bullying.
