At Luna Acrobatics and Aerial Arts we are dedicated to ensuring our venue and classes are fun, safe and engaging for all our students, coaches and volunteers which is why we are committed to safeguarding and welfare at Luna.
By signing up to Go Team Up and booking onto our classes you accept and agree to abide by our policies. You can find links to all our policies and guidance below.
Equality, Welfare and Child Protection
All Luna coaches have an enhanced DBS check and have agreed to adhere to and uphold our Safeguarding Policies and Guidance. Our coaches are also encouraged as soon as possible to attend Child Protection and Safeguarding training courses.
If you have any questions or concerns about safeguarding at Luna please get in touch:
If you think someone is in immediate danger of abuse, at risk of significant harm or are in need of protection, then call the Police on 999 and/or your local Social Services. A list of the local child service numbers can be found in the links below.
All Luna coaches are aware of the Equality Act of 2010 and where possible Luna Acrobatics and Aerial Arts will allow full participation from all members of society, provided they meet the physical readiness of activities outlined on Go Team Up upon registration.
Behaviour and Bullying
At Luna, we do not tolerate bullying. We have the right to call any student, coach or parent into a meeting to discuss the behaviour, terminate bookings with us and your membership if your behaviour is in our opinion likely to cause distress, damage or danger to a person or property; such as; other participants, parents, coaches or our partners. Links to our codes of conduct can be found at the bottom of this page.
If you have concerns around someone’s behaviour please contact the Welfare Officer.
Information for Parents and Carers
We recognise the valuable role you play in encouraging and keeping your children safe in sports and how your positive influence benefits your childs’ enjoyment of the sport. We encourage all parents and carers to support their children’s achievements at Luna. In order to assist, please find a link to national guidance for parents: https://thecpsu.org.uk/resource-library/2018/parents-in-sport-week-2018-resources
We have also got a parent’s and carers leaflet which provides you with useful information on how to ensure your child learns and has fun in a safe environment. You can find this by clicking here.

At Luna you are welcome to watch your child during the training sessions to support and encourage them. If you choose to leave your child during the session, please return at least 10 minutes before the end of the lesson and let the coach know who is collecting them.
During sessions, please be seated in the designated waiting area and do not enter the aerial space at any time. Be respectful of noise levels, other people in the studio and coaches. It is important that you do not try to instruct your child or any other person in the studio, this should be left to Luna coaches who are trained and insured to run the lessons.
COVID-19 UPDATE: If you are attending a 1:1 garden session, you must accompany your young person at all times. If you leave, the session will be cancelled and we reserve the right to terminate and block any further bookings.
For any Zoom sessions, please ensure that you are either in the room with your young person, or that the door is open and an adult is in the house during the Zoom lesson at all times.
All of our coaches are insured and have Public Liability Insurance starting from £1,000,000. Luna Acrobatics and Aerial Arts is also insured to £5,000,000.
As a student, if you would like to get insured to protect against personal injuries we would encourage you to do so independently of Luna.
