 Safeguarding #SmilesonFaces

If you see it, and it doesn’t look, feel or sound right,

 

REPORT IT

 

Children are the lifeblood of the game and it is crucial that they are cared for in the correct manner. Any player under the age of 18 is classed as a child and should be respected as such.  All our kids have #smilesonfaces and we want to keep it that way!!

In order to provide children with the best possible experiences and opportunities in rugby union, it is imperative that everyone operates within an accepted ethical framework and demonstrates exemplary behaviour. This not only ensures the game makes a positive contribution to the development of children, safeguards them and promotes their welfare but also protects all personnel from allegations of abuse or poor practice.

Macclesfield RUFC is committed from the highest level to ensuring that all children within our care are, at all times, within a safe and caring environment.

Below you will find Macclesfield RUFC’s policies and resources with respect to our approach to Safeguarding.
