3.1.3 - Child protection policy

 

Chipstead Place Lawn Tennis Club aims to create an enjoyable environment for all juniors who wish to take part in tennis or other sport and social activities at the club.

We believe that children and young people have the right to be safe, secure and free from threat.

We believe that young people have the right to be treated with respect, and to have their concerns listened to and acted upon.

We will do our best to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for young people at the club.  Any evidence of poor practice should be reported immediately to the club’s Child Protection Officer or to another member of the Committee so that appropriate action can be taken to address the situation.  Every member of the club should be prepared to help any young person who appears to be in distress or at risk, or who appears to be the victim of abuse. We will offer help and support when a child or young person tells us that they are affected by these issues.

We will take steps to ensure that any club volunteers or professionals working with children are suitable to do so, through the use of references and background checks. We will ensure that all relevant people have been vetted and approved through the LTA’s Criminal Record Bureau disclosure process.

We will ensure that all of those working with children are made aware of the LTA code of conduct for people working with children in tennis, and are required to follow it.

The club’s Child Protection Officer is:
