• The Child's Welfare is paramount.
  • All children whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious belief and/or sexual identity, have the right to protection from abuse.
  • All suspicions and allegations of inappropriate behaviour will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
  • As defined in the Children Act 1989, anyone under the age of 18 years should be considered to be a child for the purposes of this document. This also applies to vulnerable adults.
