The welfare and protection of all children and vulnerable adults in our school and affiliated companies is our primary objective and concern.


All Stages Academy teachers and volunteer/official chaperones are vetted and hold full valid DBS disclosure certificates and licences.  Children on site whether accompanied or alone are registered for class and we take responsibilty for their welfare on site.  Private lessons are co-attended by two staff in the studio and classes are attended by a teacher and at least one assistant in most cases.


We work in line with the official BATD code of practice and Child Protection Policy and all insurances are in place both on and off the premises.  If you would like to view the policy a hard copy is avilable onsite at all times.


DDC Ltd. carry out our disclosure and criminal records checks to an enhanced level for everyone that works or volunteers at the academy and agency.


If you have any questions or concerns you may speak to us during trading hours.


Thank you.
