Important information on Child Protection and CRB Disclosure
We require all artists to have an Enhanced CRB Disclosure before they undertake educational assignments with 2020 Effect and to sign and agree to our child protection policy.
In some cases we have processed the Disclosure ourselves. Where an artist’s Disclosure has been processed by another registered body, we have made every effort to check the Disclosure information.
However, these checks do not relieve clients of their child protection responsibilities and their duty of care towards their participants. If you choose to use an artist from the 2020 Effect, it is your responsibility as an employer to make adequate checks before we assign that artist to a project and to implement a proper child protection policy.
Artists working with children and young people should always be accompanied by a teacher. It is the teacher’s responsibility to manage classroom behaviour whilst the artist is undertaking a workshop. As well as enhancing safety, this enables artists to focus on artistic tasks with the pupils and enables students to learn valuable skills.
