Safeguarding & Child Protection

Theatre Royal Wakefield has a duty to ensure that everyone involved in its work is able to feel that they work in an open and safe environment where they are treated with respect and dignity and that children are protected from harm. Theatre Royal Wakefield takes pride in its work with children and young people and safeguarding vulnerable adults that we work with.

Please click here to read through our abridged Safeguarding Guidelines. These are to ensure that all staff, employees, volunteers and participants at Theatre Royal Wakefield are confident about their own good practice when working with children, young people and vulnerable adults and are aware of how to distinguish good practice in their colleagues’ behaviour. We ask all new staff, employees and volunteer to read and sign the guidelines. Participants, or parent(s) or guardian(s) when working with children and young people, are asked to be familiar with our behaviour policy and behaviour code of conduct.

There is a more detailed safeguarding policy available for those who have responsibility for Children and Young People to read, including a Lost Child Policy, Intimate Care and Toilet Policy, Password Policy, Behaviour and Bullying and E Safety Policy. These are available on request from the Learning and Participation team. Please email Rhiannon or phone 01924 334114 for further safeguarding information, or if you have any safeguarding concerns.
