Safeguarding and Code of Conduct!

All Archers of Raunds activities follow the Archery GB Safeguarding Children, Young People Policy and Safeguarding Adults Policy

The Archery GB “Safeguarding Children, Young People Policy and Safeguarding Adults Policy” is a comprehensive set of policies with an accompanying toolkit of Guidance Documents, Template Forms and Flowcharts which ensures that clubs deliver effective Child Protection for the children and young people as well as an Adult at Risk in Archery.

The Policies are openly available to all club members, parents of club juniors and potential members.

Archery GB cares deeply about this sport being a “Family Sport” and a “Sport for All”. Sport is fun – it gives us all the opportunity to make new friends, try out new activities, develop new skills and give something back to our communities. Under the policy, Protection of Children and Young People and their safety is paramount for children and young people in the archery environment.

In accordance with Archery GB insurance requirements, every club must comply with the Archery GB Policies for “Safeguarding Children, Young People and Safeguarding Adults” and all our coaches have been Enhanced DBS checked and completed NSPCC child protection courses.

Archers of Raunds complies with Archery GB’s policies because everyone has a moral and legal responsibility to provide “Duty of Care” for children and young people as per the government guide “Working Together to Safeguard Children“.

Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy

We are fully committed to safeguarding children, young people and an adult at risk by:

  • Ensuring that the welfare of children, young people and an adult at risk is paramount.
  • Creating and maintaining the safest environment possible for children, young people and an adult at risk participating in Archery.
  • Taking all reasonable steps to promote safe practice and to protect children, young people and an adult at risk from harm, abuse and exploitation.
  • Promoting an ethos which embraces difference and diversity, and respects the rights of children, young people and an adult at risk.

Archers of Raunds guidelines are based on Archery GB’s Policy for Safeguarding Children, Young People and Safeguarding Adults Policy which is mandatory for archery clubs to follow. The Archery GB Policy can be viewed on their website www.archerygb.org

Children and young people refer to people under the age of 18.

An adult at risk is a person aged 18 years and over who may have care and support needs and as a consequence be abused, neglected, discriminated or forced into marriage or modern slavery because they are unable to protect themselves. Please click on this link from Sport England Club Matters which has a video just over 6 minutes long but should help you understand the difference between safeguarding adults and children.

Abuse is any form of physical, emotional or sexual mistreatment, online abuse (Social Media), peer to peer or lack of care that leads to injury or harm.  Abusers can be male or female.  An individual might abuse or neglect a child, young person or an adult at risk directly, or may be responsible for abuse because they fail to prevent another person harming them.

Never dismiss what a child, young person or an adult at risk tells you as “lies” or exaggeration – the worst possible thing you can do is to ignore it!
