Safeguarding and Code of Conduct
Safeguarding and Code of Conduct!
All Archers of Raunds activities follow the Archery GB Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults Policies
The Archery GB “Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults Policies” 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 vulnerable adults 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 “Policy for Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults” and all our coaches have been Enhanced DBS checked and completed NSPCC child protection courses.
Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy
We are fully committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults by:
- Ensuring that the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults is paramount.
- Creating and maintaining the safest environment possible for children, young people and vulnerable adults participating in Archery.
- Taking all reasonable steps to promote safe practice and to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from harm, abuse and exploitation.
- Promoting an ethos which embraces difference and diversity, and respects the rights of children, young people and vulnerable adults.
Archers of Raunds guidelines are based on Archery GB’s Policy for Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults which is mandatory for archery clubs to follow. The Archery GB Policy can be viewed on their website www.archerygb.org.uk
Children and young people refer to people under the age of 18.
Vulnerable adults are those over the age of 18, who may be elderly, physically and/or mentally disabled, or have learning difficulties.
Abuse is any form of physical, emotional or sexual mistreatment, 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 vulnerable adult directly, or may be responsible for abuse because they fail to prevent another person harming them.
Never dismiss what a child, young person or vulnerable adult tells you as “lies” or exaggeration – the worst possible thing you can do is to ignore it.
