At Ebbisham we always have the safety of our players in mind and the club has a range of policies to ensure this. One of our main policies concerns the protection of children and vulnerable adults and in line with this we carry out checks to ensure that our coaches and others working with children and vulnerable adults have been police (DBS) checked and have attended safeguarding courses.
Extract from Ebbisham Sports Club Welfare Policy:
‘Ebbisham Sports Club is committed to building a ‘culture of safety’ in which the children and vulnerable adults in our care are protected from abuse, harm and radicalisation. The Club will respond promptly and appropriately to all incidents or concerns regarding the safety of a child or vulnerable adult that may occur.
Anyone who has concerns is expected to report it.
The Club will monitor its coaches and welfare officers to check that they have received relevant and appropriate training with regard to child abuse. In addition, all staff will be issued with copies of this policy to promote awareness of child abuse.
The Club’s designated Welfare Officers (WO) are Jane Hockey (badminton), Gillian Mead (squash) and Samantha Johnson (tennis). The WO coordinates child protection issues and liaises with external agencies (e.g. Police, Sports Governing Bodies Safeguarding teams, Social Care and the LSCB).’
The full policy can be obtained from the office and is available to read on the club website.
