Child Protection Policy

Busybodies swimming Academy recognises and accepts its responsibility to safeguard the health and welfare of children. It is essential that children and young people participating in our swimming lessons and other pool activities are able to do so in a safe and secure environment.

As a SWIM ENGLAND Swim School we are bound by the policies of SWIM ENGLAND referred to in their Child Protection guidance "WAVEPOWER". Full details can be found on

·Consent is taken from an applicant to seek information from the Criminal Records Bureau.

·Teaching staff are required to attend recognised Continual Professional Development (CPD) training courses which include child protection awareness training, to ensure the development of a positive culture towards best practice and child protection.
