Welfare: Safeguarding children and young people
‘Working together to promote our young athletes enjoyment and safety’

At Castle Point Joggers we aim to provide our young athletes with a positive introduction to athletics in a safe and supportive environment. This will best be achieved through co-operation between the coaches, the parents/carers and the young athletes themselves


  •   the welfare of the child or young person 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 or bullying.
