& Policy Guides



A copy of the Huish Episcopi safeguarding policy can be found here:

Huish Leisure has strict rules governing customer access and the appropriate use of centre facilities and opening times. This, the safeguarding of Huish Academy pupils is of the highest priority. Huish Leisure shares facilities with the Academy for the benefit of the Academy and the Leisure centre community access. This can only work if the centre customers play their part and observe the strict controls put in place to ensure pupils and customers do not share unsupervised facilities.

Huish Leisure fully recognises its responsibility for child protection. The childs act (1989) and safeguarding children and safer recruitment in education (2007) state that the "welfare of the child is paramount". As a community use leisure centre operated by Huish Episcopi Academy we therefore place the welfare of pupils at the centre of our working practices.

The Leisure centre has excellent relationship with the customers and members of the club and we hope you will understand that we offer the follwoing guidance in order to protect both pupils and customers. As a community customer you have access to the Academy Leisure facilities and measures have been taken to ensure the day to day activities of the school can continue to operate. These measures include:

  • Seperate changing rooms for the school pupils and customers. Signage will be in place to ensure customers are aware that the pupils have access to the changing rooms and customers are not allowed access. At times customers will only have the accessable changing and toilet room.
  • Security access point at reception for all customers to report onto site thorough the computer booking system
  • Seperate Leisure centre Reception for customers
  • A detailed leaflet is available to customers showing pupil acccess to the Fitness Suite.

We also ask that you follow these guidelines set out below:

  • Do not access any areas other than those allowed at the permitted times
  • Do not access the changing rooms when pupils are present
  • Maintain open and unambiguous behaviour at all times
  • No photography is permitted within the Leisure centre without permission from the Centre ManagerĀ 
  • Report inappropriate behaviour towards a child (whether from an adult or a child) to a member of Huish Leisure staff or directly to the Child Protection Officer (John Merrick-Wren 01458 250501) immediately. If in doubt, report it.
