Studio Cultivate has a duty of care to safeguard from harm all children and young people with whom it interacts. Children and young people occupy a central place within Studio Cultivate and our work. We strongly believe that all children and young people have the right to be treated fairly, justly and have the right to freedom from abuse and harm.

Studio Cultivate’s Safeguarding Policy

We believe that:

Children and young people should never experience abuse of any kind.
We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people, to keep them safe and to practise in a way that protects them.

We recognise that:

The welfare of the child is paramount.
All children, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation have a right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse.

Some children are additionally vulnerable because of the impact of previous experiences, their level of dependency, communication needs or other issues.

Working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and other agencies is essential in promoting young people’s welfare.
