5. SUPERVISION CONT.

5.4 Parents should be aware that if children are left at a venue unsupervised, other than to

attend specific coaching sessions, competitions, or other organised events, the club cannot

accept supervisory responsibility.

5.5 Special arrangements will be made for away trips. Parents will receive full information

about arrangements for any such trip and will be required to provide their consent for their

child's participation. (Managing Young People on Away Trips-Appendix 13)

6. GOOD PRACTICE GUIDELINES

6.1 Behaviour of adults and children

6.1.1 Adults who work with children are placed in a position of trust in relation to children,

and therefore it is important they behave appropriately and provide a strong positive role

model for children, both to protect children and those working with children from false

allegations of poor practice. Codes of conduct will be issued to junior members & adults

working with them to promote good practice.

6.1.2 The BOVEY CASTLE GC requires that all staff and volunteers working with children and

young people adhere to the standards set out in the Code of Conduct relevant to their role.

Similarly, children are expected to follow their own Code of Conduct to ensure the

enjoyment of all participants and assist the club in ensuring their welfare is safeguarded.

6.1.3 The BOVEY CASTLE GC requires that all staff and volunteers working with children

adhere to the guidelines on Managing Challenging Behaviour. (Managing Challenging

Behaviour-Appendix 7).

6.1.4 Parents and carers should also work together with the club to ensure that the welfare

of all children is safeguarded. A sheet on "Parental Guidance" is provided to assist them in

understanding how they can best assist the club (Parental Guidance-Appendix 12)

6.2 Adults and Children playing golf together

One of the reasons for the popularity of golf is that the game is not restricted by ability, age

or gender. Responsible interaction between adults and children helps bring mutual respect

and understanding and will be encouraged as part of club activities. Adults should always

be aware however that age related differences do exist and conduct themselves in a manner

that both recognises this and prioritises the welfare of any children involved.

6.3 Physical Contact

Physical contact with children by coaches or volunteers should always be intended to meet

the needs of the child and the sport, not the adult. That is, to develop golf technique, to

protect the child from injury, to provide first aid or treat an injury. It should always take place

in an open environment, and should not, as a general principle, be made gratuitously or

unnecessarily.
