What is Safeguarding?
Safeguarding is aimed at protecting vulnerable children and adults from harm, Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD) acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and adults at risk and is committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, government guidance and complies with best practice.
What is Prevent?
Part of NSCD’s Safeguarding duty also includes protecting vulnerable individuals from the risk of radicalisation and extremism. Prevent is one of four national strands within CONTEST, the UK’s long term Counter Terrorism Strategy. The Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 requires NSCD to have ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’.
