Our commitment to Safeguarding

RAFAKidz Big Red Blob

RAFAKidz and the RAF Association are committed to protecting from harm our children, parents, employees, volunteers, and any other people who come into contact with us through our work.

Everyone has a right to be protected from abuse, and all suspicions and allegations of abuse and neglect will be taken seriously and responded to appropriately.

Our Council (Board of Trustees) is accountable for all activities undertaken by and in the name of the RAF Association and its subsidiaries.

RAFAKidz also has a nominated Safeguarding Lead, who has overall responsibility for day to day safeguarding across all nurseries and to whom complaints about safeguarding should be addressed to:

Our expectations of those who work in our name

As a welfare charity for the wider RAF community, we are committed to delivering the highest standards of care and support. Our values and standards reflect those of the RAF: supportive, trustworthy, caring, practical and professional and we expect and require everyone who works for the RAF Association and its subsidiaries, whether volunteer or employee, or who undertakes services in our name to meet our expected standards of behaviour.

We have an approved Code of Conduct which applies to all RAFAKidz and RAF Association employees and members and sets out the culture of the organisation and the expected standards of behaviour. This is supported by a Volunteer Code of Conduct and an Employee Appropriate Behaviour Policy.

Action will be taken against individuals where their behaviour places others at risk of harm.

A copy of our safeguarding policy can be requested from your nursery manager.
