LVKA Safeguarding Information

We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded the “safeguarding code in martial arts” which has the support of Sport England. We take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable persons very seriously and have worked hard to obtain this.

LVKA acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people and is committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, government guidance ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018’ and complies with best practice as advised by the NSPCC Child Protection in sport Unit (CPSU) and English Karate Federation requirements. This includes sharing of information with relevant agencies and organisations if required for the protection of children and reporting concerns to the club safeguarding Officer and/or designated safeguarding lead of Khalsa Karate association.

As part of our safeguarding policy we will:

  • Promote and prioritise the safety and wellbeing of children and young people. Through an ethos that the welfare of the child is paramount.
  • Ensure everyone understands their roles and responsibilities in respect of safeguarding and is provided with appropriate learning opportunities to recognise, identify and respond to signs of abuse, neglect and other safeguarding concerns relating to children and young people. Ensure that all instructors / coaches complete the introduction to child protection course and in some cases the further child protection course as part of their training and refresher safeguarding training completed every two years.
