All aspects of child safety & care matter.
All poolside helpers, teachers & coaches are CRB checked.
Safeguarding Children Workshops are put on every year; teachers & coaches are expected to attend such a course every three years.
Teachers & coaches may have contact with children who are being harmed.
It is a duty of care to consider if a child appears to have been:
- physically hurt
- sexually abused
- emotionally abused
Best practise requires a teacher or coach to seek advise from the Club’s Welfare Officer, to interview the child in the presence of a second adult and if necessary to seek further professional support.
