Child Protection Policy

Coventry Sphinx Football Club formally adopts the Child Protection Procedures as approved by the Football Association.

Coventry Sphinx Football Club is committed to creating and preserving the safest possible environment for children to play football.

Any act, statement, conduct or other matter which harms a child or children, shall constitute behaviour which is improper and brings the game into disrepute.

It is the duty of all Committee Members, Managers, Coaches and any other individuals directly or indirectly involved with Coventry Sphinx Football Club to be aware of and help prevent the abuse that children can suffer whether neglect, emotional, physical or sexual.

Coventry Sphinx Football Club accepts that children's welfare is paramount and children, whatever their age, culture, ability, gender or religion, have the right to protect from abuse.

All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately. All information will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

An individual convicted or is made the subject of a caution in respect of an offence, or an investigation by the Police, Social Services or any other information which causes Coventry Sphinx to believe that an individual poses or may pose a risk of harm to a Child or Children.

Coventry Sphinx Football Club shall have the authority to impose the suspension of any individual from all specific involvement in football activities within the Club.

Coventry Sphinx Football Club shall notify The Football Association of any individual who is the subject of an investigation by the Police, Social Services or any other authority relating to an Offence.
