Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.

At Genesis Martial Arts we know that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.  We have our student’s best interest and safety at heart, which is why we require all our instructors are educated in safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.

Below are links to our child protection policy and photography policy.  Please take time to review them so that you understand them.

Our lead safeguarding officers are Joel Hoyte and Tania Preece.  If you have any concerns about the safety and well-being of any Genesis students, please contact them.  All enquiries are confidential and our primary focus will be the protection of the child of vulnerable adults identified to us.
