Safeguarding Children Policy and Procedures

Our Responsibility

Wadebridge Town AFC acknowledges its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of every child and young person who has been entrusted to its care and is committed to working to provide a safe environment for all members.

A child or young person is anyone under the age of 18 engaged in any Club football activity.

We subscribe to The Football Association’s Safeguarding Children – Policy and Procedures and endorse and adopt the Policy Statement contained in that document.

Our Respect Code of Conducts

Young Players

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game. As a player, you have a big part to play. That’s why The FA is asking every player to follow a Respect Code of Conduct.

Learn all about what is required of you as a Player here.

Coaches, Team Managers and Club Officials

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game.

In The FA’s survey of 37,000 grassroots participants, behaviour was the biggest concern in the game. This included the abuse of match officials and the unacceptable behaviour of over competitive parents, spectators and coaches on the sideline.

Play your part and observe The Football Association’s Respect Code of Conduct in everything you do.

Spectators and Parents/Carers

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game

Remember children’s football is a time for them to develop their technical, physical, tactical and social skills. Winning isn’t everything.

Please play your part and observe The FA’s Respect Code of Conduct for spectators and parents/carers here.
