Safeguarding and child protection is everyone’s responsibility but there are certain policies and procedures which should be in place at clubs and / or sports sessions.

Here at Leap we are committed to promoting the safety and welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults engaged in sporting activities across Bucks & MK; regardless of of their age, culture, ability or disability, gender, language, race, religious beliefs or sexual identity.

NSPCC guidance on safely teaching remotely

So they’ve pulled together some resources to help. Other teachers and tutors who don’t normally work in schools should also find these resources useful.
