SAFEGUARDING POLICY

GB Taekwondo is committed to providing the safest possible environment for the welfare of children and has a duty to safeguard and protect all participants from harm whilst promoting best practice.   All children have a right to protection; the welfare of children is paramount.  The needs of disabled children and others who may be particularly vulnerable are taken into account.  A child or young person is defined as anyone under the age of 18 years, this is a legal definition, and has no exemptions or exceptions.

Part of GB Taekwondo’s commitment has involved working to attain the Preliminary level of the CPSU’s “standards for safeguarding and protecting children in sport” and we move forward to attain the Intermediary level by October 2015 and progressively in line with UK Sport’s targets.  GB Taekwondo’s Safeguarding Children Policy has comprehensively been updated (September 2015) and can be downloaded here and accompanying appendices:
