I have updated the Match Play Rules, the League Formation, the Officials, and the AGM Minutes pages.
If there are any errors or omissions can you please let me know.
The minutes for the 2016 AGM are on the AGM Minutes page.
The ECF have recently published the updated “Child Safeguarding Policy”, which replaces the former “ECF Child Protection Policy” with immediate effect.
It is a requirement of your insurance that this revised policy be followed.
The ECF had hoped to produce a summary of the policy, to act as a guide for clubs and associations when it is being implemented.
However, they have received legal advice which warned them against publishing a summary.
Every section is important, and a summary may encourage omission.
Each organisation MUST have a Lead for Safeguarding, likewise a Safeguarding Officer (these may well be the same person).
This new Policy must be brought to their attention, and they will be best placed to consider what changes you may need to make to your existing procedures,
and when and how widely the document needs to be circulated.
You should also retain a copy for your records, as per the Care Risk Management Conditions of your Schedule.
The ECF Safeguarding Children Policy has now been updated, and can be found here.
