Child Safety

At Sportstars your childs safety is our number 1 priority! All of our coaches are CRB checked, are First Aid trained and are fully qualified to ensure that your child develops in a safe learning environment. Every child under the care of Sportstars is also fully insured. We also undertake regular child safety audits to ensure that out child protection and health and safety policy is upheld.

Employment

Every member of staff employed by Sportstars has to undertake a thorough job application process to ensure that we only employ experienced coaches who have worked with children before. Character references are always requested prior to employment and a full enhanced CRB must be completed prior to working for Sportstars.

Holiday Courses

Prior to the commencement of each course a thorough examination of each venue is undertaken and a risk assessment of the venue is obtained to ensure that any potential danger is noted and measures are put in place to deal with any potential dangers. 

On all of our holiday courses a child protection officer (normally the Head Coach) is also appointed who is responsible for the well being of every child. A first aider is also always appointed who is fully trained and is equipped with a First Aid Kit that meets government standards. 

 

All coaches are also required to attend a Sportstars Training Course where amongst other things, matters of health and safety and child protection policy are discussed ensure that every member of the coaching team is also fully briefed prior to working with children on a Sportstars course. 

 

In order to ensure that parents are fully aware of exactly what is taking place on a Sportstars course every parent is also issued with a Parent Pack detailing our Child Protection and Health and Safety Policy. The Parent Pack also contains the Daily Planner, Contact Phone Numbers and other information about our goals and coaching philosophy.
