Parking Guidance; when visiting Witney Town Bowls Club:






WitneyTownBowls Club

Child Protection and Vulnerable Adult Policy


Club Safeguarding Officers: Brian and Alison Eastgate



WitneyTownBowls Club

Child Protection and Vulnerable Adult Policy



Witney Town Bowls Club is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and vulnerable adults in the sport. All children and vulnerable adults are entitled to protection from harm and have the right to take part in all the club activities in a safe, positive and enjoyable environment.




·        The welfare of the child or vulnerable adult is paramount.


·        All participants regardless of age, gender, ability or disability, race, faith, size, language or sexual identity, have the right to protection from harm.


·        All allegations and suspicions of harm will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly, fairly and appropriately.


·        Everyone will work in partnership to promote the welfare, health and development of children and vulnerable adults.


·        The interests of those who work or volunteer with children and vulnerable adults will be protected.




The club will appoint a Club Safeguarding Officer (CSO), as the first point of contact for safeguarding and welfare; it will ensure that the CSO is a member of, or may attend the management committee, making safeguarding issues a priority for the club.



The club’s aim is to create a culture where everyone feels confident to raise legitimate concerns without prejudice to their own position. Concerns about the behaviour of members which may be harmful to a child or vulnerable adult in their care must be reported to the management committee through the CSO.



Good behaviour within the club is the responsibility of the players. Team captains, players and parents must always promote good discipline, both on and off the green.


Raising Concerns                                      

Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults is every member’s responsibility. This means that everyone in the club has a responsibility to respond to any concerns that they or others, may have about a child or vulnerable adult, or the behaviour of an adult.


If a child or vulnerable adult discloses information to you, you should keep questions to a minimum and make brief, accurate notes at the earliest opportunity.


A member who becomes aware of any suspicions or concerns about the safety or welfare of a child or vulnerable adult must pass these on to the CSO as soon as possible.




When the club arranges transport to matches or competitions then the club will ensure that drivers have a valid driving licence and appropriate insurance and breakdown cover has been arranged; parents give their consent and have the driver’s contact details, with the driver having easy access to parents’ contact details including mobile phone numbers; no child or vulnerable adult is left alone in the car with the driver, unless it is the adult’s own child or vulnerable adult. If, in extenuating circumstances, this situation arises the child or vulnerable adult should sit in the back of the car if possible; the children involved are happy with the arrangement and adults are alert to any signs of disquiet.



The club policy will be reviewed by the management committee at yearly intervals, or when new legislation is enacted affecting the policy.
