We have a clear commitment to child protection and the safeguarding of our students is of the highest priority.
We Require all of our Principals, teachers and assistants to apply for Enhanced Clearance via the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service, formerly Criminal Records Bureau or CRB).
Every Stagecoach Principal is in regular contact with a dedicated child protection team.
We invest in independent annual reviews to ensure that our schools and their staff are operating at the highest level of child protection standards. All necessary insurance, fire safety and first aid protocols are established within every Stagecoach school.
Trinity College London is working with Stagecoach Performing Arts to support the quality assurance of their Stagecoach Schools Annual Review programme and the identification of experts to conduct external reviews.
Keeping your child safe during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Please do not send your child to Stagecoach if they have a fever/high temperature, a new continuous cough, a loss of taste/smell or are feeling generally unwell. Equally, we would ask you not to send your child to Stagecoach if someone in your household is displaying these symptoms, or has tested positive for COVID-19.
To minimise risk, parents/carers may be asked to maintain social distancing when arriving and departing from our venue. Due to arrangements with the venue, some of our schools are not permitting parents/carers to enter the building at present, so please bear this in mind when dropping off or collecting your child.
We will be encouraging students to regularly sanitise and wash their hands upon entry and between disciplines, before and after break and toilet visits, and upon exit. Hand sanitisers will be in each classroom and the main entrance (where applicable).
Please ensure your child only brings essential possessions to Stagecoach (such as water, lunch or a snack for break and any medical needs, i.e. EpiPen), and to keep those possessions close to them wherever practicable. Where possible, please DO NOT bring mobile phones to Stagecoach.
There may be additional safety measures in place at your Stagecoach venue, which your Principal will make you aware of.
Please note, if and when government guidance and policy changes we will update our safety measures accordingly.
