The club follows Swim England's 'Wavepower' Child Protection policy.
This can be viewed in full on the Swim England website in the Wavepower section.
The club strongly believes that:
- The child's welfare is the first consideration.
- All children regardless of age, gender, racial origin, religious belief, sexual identity and any disability have a right to enjoy sport free from all forms of abuse or sexual exploitation.
- That we have responsibilities for the welfare of children and young people who take part in our sport.
- That the club has a responsibility to maintain confidentiality in all cases involving child protection in line with the current legislation.
Anyone with child protection concerns can talk to the club welfare officer Joanne, or if you believe it's urgent contact the authorities.
Joanne will make an appropriate report to Swim England if necessary. You can see her at our sessions, you can leave a sealed letter or note for her with any club coach, teacher or other volunteer, or you can e-mail through this form.
You don't have to give your name, and any communications will be dealt with confidentially.
