Safeguarding at Premier Education 

We want everyone to be active, safe, and happy. That’s why, in every activity we provide, the safety of children and young people is paramount. All our staff and anyone associated with the delivery of our activities are encouraged to promote the welfare of all participants and attendees.

Safeguarding at Premier Education

Our commitment to safeguarding

We advocate Keeping Children Safe in Education 2023 (KCSIE 2023), where safeguarding is defined as:  

  • Protecting children from maltreatment   
  • Preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development   
  • Ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care   
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes  

Every child or young person, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation has an equal right to protection from all types of harm or abuse. Types of abuse and neglect are explained in paragraphs 26-30 of Part 1 of KCSIE 2023.

We recognise that safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone who works with children and that they are an important part of the wider safeguarding system. We understand the essential role Premier Education has in helping children and young people feel safe and secure.  

We actively promote the fact that everyone involved in working with children and vulnerable adults has a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people, to keep them safe, and practice in a way that protects them.  


Some children and young people are additionally vulnerable because of the impact of previous experiences, their level of dependency, communication needs, or other issues which may or may not be linked to a protected characteristic. 

We will create safe and secure environments by:    

  • Ensuring all staff hold an up-to-date safeguarding qualification  
  • Conducting a full DBS check for all staff 
  • Sharing all policies and procedures with all who work on behalf of the organisation  
  • Ensure all personnel have attended prevent training  
  • Reporting concerns to the authorities  
  • Carefully following procedures for recruitment and selection of staff  
  • Providing effective updates for all staff, ensuring training is renewed and refreshed as appropriate 
  • Appointing a nominated Designated Safeguarding Officer(s) to take lead responsibility for the successful implementation of this policy  
  • Ensuring children, young people, vulnerable adults, and their families know about our safeguarding policy and what to do if they have a concern  
  • Building a safeguarding culture where staff, volunteers, and children know how they are expected to behave and feel comfortable about sharing concerns
