BOSS is committed to providing a welcoming, safe and active environment for all members , and adheres to the recommendations and regulations laid down in Wavepower 2012/15 – the ASA Child Safeguarding Policy and Procedures manual.
All our teachers and coaches have undertaken an Enhanced DBS Disclosure, and attend regular Safeguarding Children Training courses, which are underpinned by the recommendations in Wavepower 2012/15. The theme of Wavepower 2012/15 is to safeguard children and young people in line with current legislation and guidance. The responsibility to safeguard children from BOSS in training, competition and related activities lies with all those involved in the sport and is not the sole responsibility of any one person at club, county or national level. Wavepower 2012/15 offers practical guidance for those who are directly involved in working with children and providing awareness of both mandatory requirements and good practice guidance.
Safeguarding children is an integral part of all club activities and we strive to provide a positive and trustworthy environment in which children can learn to swim and develop to a level appropriate for their personal ability.
