We are fully committed to ensure that child protection and the safeguarding of our students is of the highest priority.

We require all of our teachers and assistants to have an Enhanced Clearance via DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service, formerly Criminal Records Bureau or CRB).

Please note, as government guidance and policies change, we will be updating safety measures accordingly.

These are the current GOV guidelines as of the 10/04/2020

  • Hand sanitisers will be available to all students although they are permitted to bring their own. 

  • Signage regarding hand washing / sanitising will be displayed around the hall.

  • Please ensure your child only brings essential possessions to CADA (such as water or a snack for break and any medical needs, i.e. EpiPen), and to keep those possessions in their own tidy area. CADA are providing each student with a plastic, wipeable, box for their belongings . These will stay on site.

  • Where possible, please DO NOT bring mobile phones or tablets to CADA.

  • Our ACRO mats will be sanitised after each use. 

  • Students will be encouraged to cough or sneeze using the inside of their elbow to 'catch it' or use a tissue which should be put into a bin bag which the Principal or teacher in charge will dispose of after each session.

  • Please ensure students have sliders / slip on shoes - for all toilet visits. 


  • We will be observing the latest social distancing guidance from the UK Government for all of our students where appropriate.

  • Rooms will be of the required size and markings made to assist students in recognising the social distancing needed.

  • Please safely leave the car park as soon as your child has been collected. For the time being, please do not use this time to socialise.


  • In the event of classes being unavailable, we will be offering replacement classes delivered via an online platform such as Zoom where available.

  • After each session the Staff of CADA STARS fill out a risk assessment form both for the Academy and Hall to highlight any problems that may have arisen and that need to be addressed before the next session.
