Safe After School Campaign
Sefton Council’s ‘Safe After School’ campaign aims to give parents and carers advice on how they can ensure their child/ren are safeguarded in clubs which take place after school or out of school term time.
After school activities can offer so many benefits including physical and educational as well as helping to nurture social skills and confidence. However, whilst many providers are safe, there are some who may not have safeguarding policies and procedures in place.
This campaign offers a range of resources for parents and carers to refer to when choosing a club and helps them to feel confident that their child/ren are safeguarded in a setting.
This includes a list of questions to ask providers before allowing their child/ren to participate.
These resources also include information and practical advice for providers. Settings can use this information to allow them to feel confident that their club has robust procedures in place or help them to develop safeguarding policies and procedures.
