Statement of Commitment to Child Safety

At Circus Arts, the wellbeing of all children in our care is paramount and therefore all trainers are made aware of their responsibilities towards the safety of children and we help ensure this by screening all staff with Working With Children Checks and regularly updating their knowledge on policies and procedures.

Circus Arts acknowledges that all children in its programs have the right to feel safe at all times. Circus Arts is committed to creating an environment of trust where children can feel safe to talk about anything openly. Circus Arts employees / volunteers will do everything they can to protect the rights, interests and wellbeing of the children and young people in their care.
