Safeguarding

All staff at SCYM are DBS checked (enhanced) and undergo safeguarding training biannually, inline with government guidance. We also follow Safer Recruitment guidelines when appointing staff. We take very seriously the welfare of our students on a Saturday and follow Essex Music Services Safeguarding Policy and Procedures. Please see our Policies below for this in detail, as well as the Keeping Children Safe in Education 2023 guidance.

All parties are responsible in maintaining the safety of young people. Should any concerns arise they should be reported immediately to the Centre staff either in person, or via the following email addresses:

Kate.Llewellyn@essex.gov.uk Kate Llewellyn, Designated Safeguarding Lead for Saffron Centre for Young Musicians

Sophie.Stafford@essex.gov.uk  Sophie Stafford Deputy Safeguarding Lead for Saffron Centre for Young Musicians

John.Hutchings@essex.gov.uk John Hutchings, Designated Safeguarding Lead for Essex Music Service

Peter.Lovell@essex.gov.uk Peter Lovell, Deputy Safeguarding Lead for Essex Music Service

All Pastoral staff are trained in first aid, and if there are any individual medical needs we should know about to provide care for any attending young person, please inform us of this at the point of enrolment.
