Confidentiality should be maintained in line with the Human Rights Act 2000 and the Date Protection Act 1988.

Our child protection procedures are intended to maintain professionalism and high standards of practice so that our staff and coaches can work with parents and carers to ensure the children’s welfare remains paramount.

We recognise that any procedure is only as effective as the ability and skill of those who operate it. We are therefore committed to operating sound recruitment procedures.

What is an enhanced DBS? A Criminal Record Check at Enhanced Disclosure level with barred list checks, often referred to as an Enhanced DBS, is the highest level required for positions that can involve caring for, training, supervising or being in sole charge of children or vulnerable adults.
