Policy Document

Veras Academy Luxembourg acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people and is committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities and government guidance. 

The policy recognises that the welfare and interests of children and young people are paramount in all circumstances. It aims to ensure that regardless of age, ability/disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation, socio-economic background, all children and young people:

  • Have a positive and enjoyable experience of sport/physical activities at Veras Academy Luxembourg in a safe and environment.

  • Are protected from abuse whilst participating in activities or outside of the activity.

Veras Academy Luxembourg acknowledges that some children, including disabled children and young people or those from ethnic minority communities, can be particularly vulnerable to abuse and we accept the responsibility to take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure their welfare.   

As part of our safeguarding policy Veras Academy Luxembourg will:

  • Promote and prioritise the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.

  • Ensure everyone understands their roles and responsibilities in respect of safeguarding and is provided with appropriate learning opportunities to recognise, identify and respond to signs of abuse, neglect and other safeguarding concerns relating to children and young people.

  • Ensure appropriate action is taken in the event of incidents/concerns of abuse and support provided to the individual/s who raise or disclose the concern.

  • Ensure that confidential, detailed and accurate records of all safeguarding concerns are maintained and securely stored.

  • Prevent the employment/deployment of unsuitable individuals.

  • Ensure robust safeguarding arrangements and procedures are in operation.

The policy and procedures will be widely promoted and are mandatory for everyone involved in Veras Academy Luxembourg. Failure to comply with the policy and procedures will be addressed without delay and may ultimately result in dismissal/exclusion from the organisation, having their membership or their child’s membership terminated.
