Child Protection Policy


We at Above & Below (UK) Ltd, believe that the safety and welfare of all children, whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin and religion, is paramount and in doing so, take all reasonable precautions to ensure this when children participate in scuba and skin diving activities with us. All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.

It is generally recognised that SCUBA and skin diving can contribute positively to the development of individuals, physically, personally, socially and emotionally. This can only happen if the teaching and supervision of SCUBA and skin diving is in the right hands - those of the informed, thinking and enlightened individuals, operating in an accepted ethical framework and as a self-monitoring professional.

Our staff are in positions of considerable influence, especially when teaching and supervising children and therefore have a profound responsibility to demonstrate and set high moral and ethical standards. Additionally, in an age of increasing litigation and with a growing awareness of the incidence of all kinds of abuse, it is essential for all our staff to consider their own practices to ensure that children's welfare is paramount and that their behaviour cannot be misconstrued or deemed to contravene accepted good practice.

To this end, staff at Above & Below (UK) Ltd, maintain CRB checking and attend relevant training for Safeguarding Children.

Should you have any questions about your child's safety or the diving activity, please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff.
