CLWB BOWLIO LLANDYSUL BOWLING CLUB
SAFEGUARDING AND CHILD PROTECTION POLICY
Clwb Bowlio Llandysul Bowling Club has considered its responsibilities to the children participating in bowling at our premises and within the club very carefully, and has produced the following Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy and underpinning procedures in order to set out the standards we wish to uphold in providing activities for and safeguarding the welfare of children in our care.
Clwb Bowlio Llandysul Bowling Club affiliates to the Welsh Bowls Federation and recognises the policies of this governing body as described in their “Summary of Child Protection and Vulnerable Adults Policy” available on their website.
Clwb Bowlio Llandysul Bowling Club acknowledges its duty of care to safeguard the welfare of all children (defined as less than 18 years of age) involved in Bowls within the club. All children have a right to protection, and have their particular needs taken into account. Llandysul B C will therefore endeavour to ensure the safety and protection of all children involved with the club through the Child Protection guidelines adopted by the management Committee of the club.
It is the responsibility of all adults within the club to assist the committee in this endeavour.
To provide children with appropriate safety and protection whilst in the care of the club and also to help them to enjoy the experience of the sport.
To reassure parents that their children will receive the best practicable care possible whilst participating in activities within the club.
To provide support to the appointed child protection officer (see below) to make informed and confident responses to specific child protection issues and to fulfil their roll effectively.
All children, of whatever age, culture, disability, gender, language, ethnic origin and religious beliefs have the right to protection from abuse.
All suspicions and allegations of abuse and poor practice will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
Llandysul B C’s policy & procedures are based on the above principles and UK and International legislation and government guidance.
The Club Child Protection Officer has the responsibility for responding to any allegations or concerns or child protection incidents and is trained in this regard.
Parents have a responsibility to work together with the club in implementing these procedures and providing their children with the necessary information to safeguard themselves.
