To ensure your Dojo is taking all possible steps to safeguard children, all Dojos must adopt the Raspberry Pi Foundation Safeguarding Policy, which you can find attached to this help article.
This policy applies to all staff, trustees, volunteers and sessional workers, agency staff, and anyone working on behalf of the Raspberry Pi Foundation (RPF), such as regional bodies, clubs, or national partners. It covers all RPF programmes and activities, including but not limited to Code Club, CoderDojo, Raspberry Jams, Picademy, Coolest Projects, and other events that the RPF leads.
Events may be held at venues that have their own safeguarding policies. In these instances, this policy should be seen as a supplement to the venue’s policy.
• To protect children, young people, and vulnerable adults who take part in RPF activities.
• To provide staff and volunteers with the overarching principles that guide our approach to safeguarding and child protection.
The RPF believes that a child, young person, or vulnerable adult should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children, young people, and vulnerable adults, and to keep them safe. We are committed to following practices that protect them.
