Child Safeguarding

Wavepower 2016–19 is the latest Swim England Child Safeguarding Policies and Procedures publication which replaces all previous versions.
It has been produced to assist in safeguarding and protecting children in all Swim England affiliated clubs and organisations.
Ensuring that children are safeguarded remains a key part of how our club operates. It helps to ensure we provide a safe and happy environment in which our children can learn to swim and develop their skills.
The responsibility to safeguard children does not belong to any one person, but instead belongs to everyone who plays a part in delivering our sporting activities. Wavepower is intended for anyone involved in these activities and offers practical guidance and information on mandatory requirements and good practice.
This publication will be fully updated in 2020, but if any new guidance or policy changes are released prior to this, then pages will be updated on the Swim England website.
