Safety assurances around Big Norfolk Holiday Fun sessions

Children’s safety and wellbeing is paramount. Norfolk County Council and Active Norfolk, which jointly deliver Norfolk Big Holiday Fun, require all participating providers to have relevant and appropriately inclusive policies and procedures in place. This is in relation to safeguarding, health and safety and accessibility.

We require providers to offer activities which are inclusive and accessible to children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities, and also to work with parents and carers at the time of booking with regards to any requirements, adaptations or adjustments needed. This also includes the ability to respond to health conditions.

Safety is a primary consideration when planning activities or events, and always includes the duty to safeguard children. We provide appropriate training (where needed) to support providers with this, including using the Code of Practice for Keeping Children Safe and a guidance leaflet for keeping young people safe in sport.

All providers must have a suitable and up-to-date risk assessment plan in line with the latest government guidelines. We also support this by providing a risk assessment process which can be used to record, identify and assess risks for each session.
