Taking risks to transform lives

Safeguarding & Policies

Please be reassured we have all the policies and risk assessments you will need. Please contact us with any specific requests.

Our commitment to safeguarding

At Urban Pursuit, we recognise that high self-esteem, confidence, supportive friends and clear lines of communication with a trusted adult helps all children, and especially those at risk of, or suffering from abuse.

Urban Pursuit will therefore:

  • Establish and maintain an ethos where children feel secure and are encouraged to talk, and are listened to.
  • Ensure that young people know that there are adults around who they can approach if they are worried or are in difficulty.
  • Include, in the curriculum, activities and opportunities which equip students with the skills they need to stay safe from abuse and which will help them develop realistic attitudes to the responsibilities of adult life.
  • Ensure that wherever possible every effort will be made to establish effective working relationships with parents and colleagues from other agencies.

Our commitment to Risk Assessment

Urban Pursuit uses adventurous activities and adrenaline sports for the core of its educational work.  We value an appropriate level of risk within our work, for example, to support young people in determining their own boundaries and overcoming their fears. 

We also take our responsibility seriously to ensure that due diligence is taken regarding the safety of the young people we work at Urban Pursuit, as well as our staff and our reputation.

All of our activities fall within a risk assessment, either:

  1. Low-level, everyday risks, which are covered within our Standard Operating Procedures,
  2. Activities run by Urban Pursuit (‘in-house’ activities) which are individually risk-assessed by us, 
  3. Activities run by external providers (‘out-of-house’ activities) which have risk assessments written by the provider themselves.
