We have adopted (and extended) the guidlines issued by the Child Protection in Sport Unit of the NSPCC. These are the basis of guidlines of many sporting organisations.
Underlying the guidlines are a few principles, namely;
- The interests and welfare of children taking part in sporting activities is paramount
- Children and their parents/carers have a right to decide whether their photograph is taken, and how those images may be used
- Children and their parents/carers must provide written consent for their images to be taken and used
