The Oxted Band takes Safeguarding very seriously and we want to ensure that the Band provides an environment which is safe and enjoyable for all. The Safeguarding policy applies to all Band Members, both in the training band and the main band. It also applies to any visiting players, and applies to all band events, including rehearsals, concerts and both outdoor and indoor events.
The purpose of the Safeguarding policy is to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults who play with either the Band or the Training Band.
We have recently updated our Safeguarding policy, with guidance from Brass Bands England’s ‘Band Safe’ initiative. It can be found here.
