Safeguarding Matters

Safeguarding children at events

Here we focus on one of the essential elements described by the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit that should be in place, regardless of the size and nature of any sports event you are planning.

Intra-school event

l Creating a safe environment l Codes of conduct l Do you have codes of conduct and principles of participation?

A code of conduct should outline expected good practice at the event, written clearly and appropriately for the audience. If the event is

being delivered by different partner organisations, all partners should sign up to a common code of conduct, with principles for participation for children and adults. There should be clearly identified ways to challenge unacceptable behaviour – e.g. bullying – and all parties must be made aware of how breaches of the code will be addressed.

Information and resources – including sample policies and templates - to help you put all these elements in place, are available via the guidance document, “Safe sport events, activities and competitions” and online tool. Simply identify which sections of the tool are relevant to you and work through these at the appropriate level.
