Safeguarding

Tadworth Cricket Club is firmly committed to providing an environment that is safe and welcoming for children to enjoy the game.

Creating a culture where their views are asked for, as well as being able to offer their own opinions, helps develop an environment where children feel able to share concerns and everyone can challenge poor practice or behaviour.

Key to this is the recruitment and vetting of the many invaluable individuals who create many rewarding experiences in cricket.

All organisations working with children have safeguarding responsibilities and clear requirements placed upon them by legislation and guidance.

This applies whether a club, league panel or another organisation. It is there to ensure safe recruitment practices for individuals who work with children, including policies on when to obtain a criminal records check (dbs).

If you have any concerns about a child or the behaviour of an adult you should share these immediately with your lead coach, team manager or our Club Welfare Officer..

Usefull Information:

Best Practice also recommends that all Junior Team / Squad managers also attend a Safeguarding Course and have attended a Basic First Aid Course.
