Child Protection Policy

Approach

  • The welfare of the child is paramount
  • All children, whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial, origin, religious beliefs and/or sexual identity have the right to protection from
    abuse
  • All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately
  • All club representatives who work with children will be recruited with regard to their suitability for that responsibility and will be provided with guidance and/or training in good practice and child protection procedures
  • Working in partnership with children, their parents/carers and other agencies is key to promoting young people’s welfare
