Safeguarding and Protecting Young People Commitment

Club Badge Hi-Res

City of Peterborough Hockey Club adopts England Hockey’s Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Hockey Policy, Procedures and Guidance to ensure all those in the hockey family have a safe and positive experience.

 

We will do this by:

  • Recognising all young people participating in hockey (regardless of age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, ability or disability) have the right to play in an environment free from poor practice, abuse and harm.

  • Ensuring all people who work in hockey at, or for, our club (including staff, officials, volunteers, team managers, coaches) have a responsibility for safeguarding young people and understand how the safeguarding policy and guidance applies to them.

  • Ensuring all individuals working at, or for, the club are recruited in accordance with England Hockey’s recruitment guidance.

  • Ensuring all individuals working within hockey at, or for, the club are provided with support, through education and training, so they are aware of and adhere to England Hockey’s Code of Ethics and Behaviour.

  • Always approaching safeguarding with a young person perspective, ensuring the individual’s wellbeing is the prime focus.

  • Ensuring that the responsibility of determining whether or not abuse has taken place, lies with child protection experts, however it is everyone in hockey’s responsibility to report concerns.

 

City of Peterborough Hockey Club will ensure the name and contact details of the Welfare Officer are available:

  • As the first point of contact for parents, young people and volunteers/staff within the club. 

  • As the main point of contact within the club for the England Hockey Safeguarding team as well as relevant external agencies in connection with safeguarding young people.

  • As a local source of procedural advice for the club, its committee and members. 

 

City of Peterborough Hockey Club fully endorse and accept the England Hockey policies, procedures and guidance on Safeguarding and Protecting Young People.

These are shown on the following Safeguarding Pages on our website:
