SUDBURY GOLF CLUB
The purpose of this document is to make all Club members aware of their safeguarding responsibility, identify particular areas of the Safeguarding Policy that they should be aware of and give some guidance on reporting procedures if a concern is identified. Sudbury Golf Club choose to display this on the club notice boards and give a copy to all new members.
Safeguarding Children and Young People – A Short Guide for Club Members
SUDBURY GOLF CLUB is committed to ensure that the sport of golf is one within which children and young people involved can thrive and flourish in a safe environment and that all children, young people and adults at risk have a fun, safe and positive experience when playing golf.
SUDBURY GOLF CLUB is an affiliated member of England Golf and follows the England Golf Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy and procedures.
You might be thinking “What has safeguarding got to do with me?”
Government guidance makes it clear that ‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility’.
Anyone who has a negative experience of sport at a young age is less likely to become a regular long-term participant. It’s important for the future of your club and the sport as a whole that children and young people have an enjoyable experience.
All club members have a part to play in making that happen.
All adults should contribute to the club meeting its overall duty of care, be aware of our club’s safeguarding policy, and know what to do if they are concerned about a young person.
SUDBURY GOLF CLUB asks our members to
- • Familiarise yourself with the SUDBURY GOLF CLUB Safeguarding Policy.
The full copy of the SUDBURY GOLF CLUB Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy is available on our website www.sudburyGC.com
1. In particular familiarise yourself with:
SUDBURY GOLF CLUB Codes of Conduct
Adults should always be aware that age related differences exist and conduct themselves in a manner that both recognises this and prioritises the welfare of children and young people.
2. Anti-Bullying Policy
SUDBURY GOLF CLUB believe that every effort must be made to eradicate bullying in all its forms. The Club will not tolerate bullying in any of its forms during club matches, competitions, coaching or at any other time while at the club.
3. Transport Policy
The club believes it is primarily the responsibility of parents/carers to transport their child/children to and from events.
4. Changing Room Policy
The changing rooms are used by all members & visitors. Wherever possible adults will avoid changing or showering at the same time as children but parents will be made aware that with limited changing room space there will be occasions when adults and children may need to share the facilities. Where a parent/carer does not consent to their child accessing the changing rooms, it is their responsibility to either supervise the child while in the changing rooms or ensure that they do not use them.
5. Photography, Videoing, and the use of Social Media Policies
Think very carefully before contacting a young person via mobile phone, e-mail or social media.
Do not accept children as contacts on social networking sites if you hold a position of trust with children/young people.
In general stick to group communications, copy the communication to a parent and only communicate about organisational matters.
