1. SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT
Middlesbrough Rugby Union Football Club believes that rugby union is a sport which is enjoyable and which should have a positive impact on players, both at mini junior and senior levels. It is a sport that should be enjoyed by all young people who wish to take part and it is our intention to provide a climate and environment where young players are protected and kept safe from harm. We will treat all suspicions and allegations of harm or inappropriate behaviour seriously and will respond swiftly and appropriately.
The Club has adopted the guidelines laid down by the RFU and listed below are the key principles that we shall follow when dealing with the welfare of all young players:
We recognise the roles and responsibilities of statutory agencies in relation to safeguarding young people and promoting their welfare, and are fully committed to complying with the procedures of the Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards;
We have appointed a Child Safeguarding Officer to ensure that the all procedures are followed; We require all coaches and those involved with mini junior rugby to be checked and cleared by the CRB
