Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults
Statement of principles
Our approach is based upon respect for all and an unreserved commitment to safety, fairness and equality of opportunity, especially for young people under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults. We will work with employers to provide a safe and secure environment within which all learners can work and learn and we will make every effort to identify any learner at risk of suffering harm during their involvement with our programmes and once identified we will take appropriate action to keep them safe.
Mark Betts Hair Education has a duty of care for all learners involved in our learning programmes. We believe that all young people, especially those under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults deserve to be happy and secure in their working and learning activities and that parents or guardians need to feel sure that the people in charge of these activities are trustworthy, responsible and will do everything possible to keep young people safe from harm. Having safeguards in place not only protects and promotes the welfare of young people, but it also improves confidence and protects the employees and representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education.
We recognise that there could be individuals involved in our programmes who may wish to harm young people, especially those under the age of 18. It is therefore the duty of Mark Betts Hair Education to put in place safeguards to protect the children/young people we work with.
Mark Betts Hair Education also wishes to avoid placing employees and representatives in positions where abuse might be alleged and to ensure that everyone knows what the reporting structure within the organisation is should abuse be suspected. Our emphasis is not only to protect the vulnerable from abuse and neglect but to actively promote the welfare of young people.
As a result, Mark Betts Hair Education has drawn up a safeguarding policy and a set of procedures to put what is intended into practice.
Mark Betts Hair Education has a responsibility to continually review and monitor its safeguarding policy and procedures, gaining further advice and information wherever possible. Our policy and procedures will therefore be reviewed annually and/or whenever important new developments in safeguarding takes place.
Employees and representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education should be aware of our safeguarding policy and procedures in order to help make our programmes safe for young people, and to understand their individual responsibilities.
Mark Betts Hair Education provides learning opportunities for young people including those under the age of 18 who are legally classed as children, and vulnerable adults. We work closely with employers and offer advice and guidance in areas relating to the selection and recruitment, enrolment, initial assessment, induction, planning of learning, teaching and learning, review of progress, assessment and verification, and achievement of young people.
The responsibility to safeguard children, young people and vulnerable adults extends to demonstrate a strong commitment to ensuring that the health, safety and wellbeing of learners is paramount.
The employees and representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education meet frequently with young people and/or vulnerable adults who are registered on our learning programmes and we recognise that we have a moral and legal obligation to strive to protect all learners but especially vulnerable adults/those under the age of 18 who may be at risk of abuse or neglect.
The representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education also include those employees and self employed individuals at the salons and academies with whom we work who are directly involved in the learning programmes operated by Mark Betts Hair Education and it is essential that these representatives also know and respect our policies and procedures and understand their individual responsibilities.
The rights of young people – our values and beliefs
The needs of learners, especially those under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults, underpins all that we do.
All young people, especially those under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults, have
the right to work, learn and develop in a caring and safe environment.
All young people, especially those under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults, have the right to be protected from abuse of all types and to expect that those in positions of responsibility will do everything possible to foster that right.
The primary duty of all adults, including the employees and representatives of
Mark Betts Hair Education, whatever their nominated role, is to protect those under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults from significant harm.
The protection all young people, especially those under the age of 18 and vulnerable
adults from abuse of all types should be seen as part of the general responsibility of the
employees and representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education, and of the employers we work with.
Responsibility for safeguarding young people under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults must be shared because they can only be protected effectively when all relevant agencies and individuals accept responsibility and co-operate with one another.
All learning services aimed at young people, especially those under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults, delivered by the employees and representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education must be done so within an ethical and professional framework; please refer to Appendix 1 for the Mark Betts Hair Education Safeguarding Code of Conduct and Appendix 2 for the Mark Betts Hair Education Safeguarding Disclosure Declaration.
For the purposes of the Children Act 2004, a child is a person under the age of 18.
In addition, it is also a person aged 18, 19 or 20 who has been in care since the age of 16 or
a person aged 18, 19 or 20 who has a learning disability.
A vulnerable adult is person aged 18 years or over, who is in receipt of or may be in need of community care services by reason of 'mental or other disability, age or illness and who is or may be unable to take care of him or herself, or unable to protect him or herself against significant harm or exploitation'.
The Mark Betts Hair Education Child Protection Officer is the person to whom employees and representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education are responsible to with regards to safeguarding young people under the age of 18.
There are four definitions of abuse which would prompt an investigation:
It is important to note that the age of consent for sexual activity is 16 years. Any sexual activity involving persons when one or more of the persons involved is aged 15 or under is unlawful.
Underage sex may involve child abuse, and therefore require a referral to the Child Protection Officer within the organisation who then has the responsibility to report this to the appropriate bodies, e.g. the Local Authority Social Services department and/or the Police.
Responsibilities for investigating incidences of child abuse
There are two agencies with the statutory right to undertake a child protection investigation. These are the Local Authority Social Services department and the Police.
The employees and representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education are not responsible for diagnosing, investigating or providing a remedial response to abuse. However, they do have a responsibility to be alert to signs that all is not well with a young person, especially one under the age of 18. Not all concerns about young people relate to abuse, there may well be other explanations. It is therefore important to keep an open mind and consider what is known about a young person and her/his circumstances. However, all employees and representatives have a responsibility to report any suspected abuse to the CPO.
No responsible adult must ever prevent or delay making a referral if it is felt a young person, especially one under the age of 18, is at risk of significant harm. Any suspected abuse must be immediately reported to the CPO. Be aware, however, that a member of the Mark Betts Hair Education leadership team has a responsibility to make a referral if they feel that an employee or representative of Mark Betts Hair Education is failing to appreciate a risk to a young person, especially one under the age of 18.
Please note: It is important to remember that a wrong course of action in response to a suspicion of abuse can have a negative impact on the outcome of a child protection
investigation. For example if evidence arises which suggests an agency other than Social
Services or the Police attempted to undertake an investigation (knowingly or unknowingly) it could seriously undermine a successful child protection action. Therefore the referral process should be carried out which is shown in the flowchart.
Types of abuse and neglect
A person may abuse or neglect a young person under the age of 18 or a vulnerable adult by inflicting harm, or by failing to act to prevent harm.
Physical Abuse - physically hurting or injuring another person by hitting or otherwise
causing physical harm.
Sexual Abuse - where a young person under the age of 18 or vulnerable adult is used
by others to meet their own sexual needs. This could range from showing pornographic material to inappropriate touching to having full sexual intercourse.
Emotional Abuse - persistent emotional ill-treatment of a person so as to cause severe adverse effects on their emotional development. I t may involve conveying to a person that they are worthless or inadequate. It may involve causing a person to feel frightened or in danger by being constantly shouted at, threatened or taunted which may make the person very nervous and withdrawn. Some level of emotional abuse is involved in all types of ill-treatment.
Neglect - where a person’s basic physical and psychological needs are not met, which is likely to result in the serious impairment of their health or development (e.g. failing to protect from physical harm or danger).
Indicators of Abuse - Indications that a person may be experiencing abuse include the following:
•Unexplained or suspicious injuries such as bruising, cuts or burns, particularly if situated on a part of the body not normally prone to such injuries
•Deliberately avoiding Social Services for fear of the child being received into care
•An injury for which the explanation seems inconsistent
•The young person describes what appears to be an abusive act involving him/her
•Someone else expresses concern about the welfare of a young person
•Unexplained changes in behaviour (e.g. becoming very quiet, withdrawn or is displaying sudden outbursts of temper)
•Inappropriate sexual awareness or engaging in sexually explicit behaviour
•Distrust of adults, particularly those with whom a close relationship would normally be expected
•Has difficulty in making friends
•Is prevented from socialising with other young people
•Displays variations in eating patterns including overeating or loss of appetite
•Loses weight for no apparent reason
•Becomes increasingly dirty or unkempt
It should be recognised that this list is not exhaustive and the presence of one or more of the indicators is not proof that abuse is actually taking place. However, abuse may take many forms and be displayed in many forms. Any concerns about possible abuse involving a young person under the age of 18 or to a vulnerable adult should be raised with the Mark Betts Hair Education Child Protection Officer.
It is important to recognise that in some cases of abuse, it may not be an adult abusing a young person but another young person. This is often the case with bullying which may be seen as deliberately hurtful behaviour, usually repeated over a period of time, where it is difficult for those bullied to defend themselves. Please note that bullying can also occur by texting, emailing or via a social networking site.
Bullying can include:
•Physical (e.g. hitting, kicking, etc)
•Verbal (e.g. name calling, constant teasing, sarcasm, racist or homophobic taunts, threats, graffiti and gestures)
•Emotional (e.g. tormenting, ridiculing, humiliating and ignoring)
•Sexual (e.g. unwanted physical contact or abusive comments)
There are a number of signs that may indicate that a young person is being bullied:
•Behaviour changes such as reduced concentration and/or becoming withdrawn, depressed, tearful, emotionally up and down
•A drop off in performance at work or in training
•Physical signs, such as minor illnesses, difficulty in sleeping, scratches or bruising, damaged clothes
•Bingeing on food, cigarettes or alcohol
•A shortage of money or frequent loss of possessions
Responding to disclosure, suspicions and allegations
If a young person under the age of 18 or a vulnerable adult says or indicates that he/she is being abused, or information is obtained which gives concern that a young person under the age of 18 or a vulnerable adult is being abused, action should be taken immediately. The allegation must become the top priority. The person’s safety is paramount.
Responding to Disclosure
The person receiving information concerning abuse should:
•React calmly so as not to frighten the young person
•Tell them that he/she is right to report the incident or incidents
•Take what is said seriously
•Keep questions to the absolute minimum to ensure a clear and accurate understanding of what has been said by the young person
•Use open ended questions, e.g. those that require more than a 'yes' or 'no' response. The law is very strict and child abuse cases have been dismissed if it appears that the child has been led, or words and ideas have been suggested
•Reassure the young person but do not make promises of confidentiality which might not be feasible in the fight of subsequent developments
•Make a full record of what has been said, heard and/or seen as soon as possible
Actions to Avoid
The person receiving information about abuse should not:
•Panic or allow their shock or distaste to show
•Probe for more information than is offered
•Speculate or make assumptions
•Make negative or positive comments about the alleged abuser or the allegation
•Approach the alleged abuser
•Make promises, agree to keep secrets or promise confidentiality, adults have a legal obligation to report any alleged abuse
Where a disclosure of abuse has been made then the employee or representative of
Mark Betts Hair Education must take the action detailed in the following sections.
Responding to Suspicions
It is not the job of an employee or representative of Mark Betts Hair Education, or an employer or senior member of the salon or academy team, to decide whether or not abuse is taking place. However, there is a responsibility to protect young persons in order that appropriate agencies can then make enquiries and take any necessary action.
Actions to take
The person suspecting an abuse should:
•Keep precise notes of events that raise suspicion.
•Any alleged abuse should be reported to the Child Protection Officer without delay
Actions to Avoid
The person suspecting an abuse should not:
•Make assumptions - it may take time to build up a picture of possible abuse.
•Make enquiries or probe for information to verify a possible abuse.
Action on disclosure or suspicion of abuse
There should always be the opportunity to discuss concerns with the Mark Betts Hair Education Child Protection Officer who will then contact the appropriate bodies where applicable.
Never delay taking immediate action by reporting directly to the Child Protection
Officer in order to protect a young person under the age of 18 or a vulnerable adult who is felt to be at risk of significant harm
Always make a written record of concerns about a person’s welfare, whether or not further action is taken
Always make a written record of discussions about a person’s welfare as soon as possible, writing down exactly what the young person has said. This should include information on their name, age and any relevant family information, details of the situation and the activity that preceded disclosure
Also note any physical signs of abuse
The employee or representative informed of abuse should remind the person that
Mark Betts Hair Education cannot guarantee confidentiality in any situation where a young person under the age of 18 or a vulnerable adult is at risk of abuse or further abuse
Making a referral
If someone believes that a young person under the age of 18 or a vulnerable is suffering significant harm, or is at risk of suffering significant harm, then they should immediately refer these concerns to the Mark Betts Hair Education Child Protection Officer who will then report the concerns to the relevant body, either the Social Services Department or the Police.
To understand and establish 'significant harm', it is necessary to consider:
•The nature of the harm, in terms of maltreatment or failure to provide adequate care
•The impact on the young person’s health and development
•The young person's development within the context of their employment and learning
•Any special needs, such as medical condition, communication impairment or disability that may affect the young person’s development and care
•The capacity of parents to adequately support or meet the needs of the young person
It is advantageous to work with the salon or academy with the aim of ensuring their support in disclosing the alleged abuse to the Social Services Department or to the Police.
However, the Child Protection Officer has the responsibility to report to the relevant bodies.
If it is suspected that the abuser may be an employee or representative of Mark Betts Hair Education, which includes employees of the salon or academy, speaking to them may place the young person under the age of 18 or the vulnerable adult at greater risk. Therefore this
should be reported to the Child Protection Officer who would then take the appropriate action.
For the sake of clarity, any employee or representative of Mark Betts Hair Education may report a disclosure or suspicion of abuse to the Child Protection Officer and the Child
Protection Officer will then report the suspicion of abuse to the Local Authority Social
Services Department irrespective of the opinion of colleagues including members of the
Mark Betts Hair Education leadership team. A referral must never be delayed or prevented from being made.
Full written records must be made of all disclosures, suspicions and actions taken as
soon as possible.
Failure to make a referral
Organisations have a duty to refer individuals to the Secretary of State for possible inclusion on the list of those who are considered unsuitable to work with young people under the age of 18. Failure to make a referral is an offence.
An individual who is working with young people under the age of 18 or with vulnerable adults, whether paid or unpaid, has to be referred to the Secretary of State for inclusion on the list of individuals who are considered unsuitable to work with young people under the age of 18 when they have harmed a child or put a child at risk of harm and have been dismissed or moved away from contact with children as a consequence or would have been dismissed for that reason had they not been made redundant, retired, resigned or come to the expiry of a fixed term contract.
Those whose names which are contained within the list of individuals who are considered unsuitable to work with children will commit a criminal offence if they apply to or work with young people under the age of 18 or with vulnerable adults.

These situations may be difficult to manage; however, all adults have a duty to protect the young person involved.
Where there is a disclosure or suspicion, employees or representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education should respond in line with previously detailed actions.
Employees or representatives of Mark Betts Hair Education need to identify whether a referral should be made and any referral should be made to the Child Protection Officer.

referral should be made to the Child Protection Officer.
