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.
all suspicions and allegations of abuse , bullying and poor practice will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately
all young athletes and adults are expected to show respect for each other and follow the codes of practice they agreed to on joining.
