Parents Code of Conduct and Child Safety - A Reminder

As a Club we constantly review and update our policies in relation to a wide variety of important areas such as Child Protection, Anti -Bullying, Social Media etc. All club policies are available on the club website and we would encourage everyone to familiarise themselves with these. We plan to regularly circulate specific policies to ensure that parents, swimmers and coaches are aware of their reponsibilities.

With regard to the Parents Code of Conduct we would like remind parents and carers that they are responsible for their children in the showers, changing rooms and all areas of the complex other than poolside. The coaches are responsible only for poolside. We would therefore ask that parents ensure that they have adequate procedures in place to safeguard a child when not on poolside and specifically around dropping-off and collection at the start and end of a session.

Whilst child protection is a priority for all our coaches there are constant demands on their time at the end of session and it is not always possible for them to monitor child collection. Recently, disruption caused by snow resulted in both swim sessions that day being cancelled at the last minute. Whilst we make every effort to ensure we get a message to all swimmers we would ask that if you have to leave a pool that you first establish that the session is proceeding and that there have been no changes to the published programme.

We would also ask all parents of children swimming in our Sunday morning session to ensure that they are at the complex prior to the swim session ending at 08:45 to assist with the transition from pool to land training.

The safety of our swimmers will always be our priority and I would ask for your continued vigilance in this matter. If you see anything that puts a child in harms way I would ask that you immediatedly advise one of the coaches or a member of the committee. (28 Jan 2013)

The page will be used to give quick messages regarding training changes or cancellations, good luck messages, communicating success stories etc. Our website will still be used for more detailed information and photographs.  

Our Facebook and Social Network Policy is on the website under Club Policies and we would ask that EVERYONE read and be aware of this. In accordance with this policy children need to be at least 13 years of age before being able to use our page, but we welcome all parents of our swimmers to access it. We will not accept requests from anyone other than GASC members, parents and coaches.
