Armagh Pipers Club is committed to the highest standards of safeguarding practice. Our tutors are AccessNI checked and provided with safeguarding refresher training by external experts at the start of each year. The Club is currently (August 2020) reviewing its written Safeguarding Policy to address in more detail topics that have gained new importance in recent times, such as interactive teaching via Zoom and similar platforms, and social media use. The revised policy will be published here once the APC Board has approved the text. It will also be shared with relevant organisations for advice, and reviewed again next summer.
The Club’s Safeguarding Officers are Siobhan Scowcroft and Mary McCabe. Siobhan can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org. Either can be contacted via the Club’s office, or any member of the Board, if you have any questions or concerns.
