We believe that ART must have comprehensive and appropriate guidance as an organisation, and for our Teachers and Members. On this page you will find the most recent versions of the ART policies, Codes of Practice and Guidance Notes. Following this guidance is expected for ART members and those in training. If you do follow the guidance you will normally be doing enough to comply with the law and comply with good practice. ART Members need to follow this guidance to ensure the benefit of ART Liability Insurance cover. The relevant enforcing authorities will seek to secure compliance with the law and reference to this guidance may be seen as evidence of this compliance.
These policies and codes of practice will assist the Association and its members and volunteers to comply with all necessary legal practices and codes of conduct around the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.
Following are links to some of the external documents that have been used to help form ART's Policies and Codes of Practice. They are included here for reference and/or additional guidance.
