SAFEGUARDING

What is your problem?

 

How many times a day do we hear this.

Maybe it's a parent, teacher, teammate or friend.

Most of the time there isn't a problem, but what if there was?

Who can you talk to?

We are here to ask "What IS the problem?"

 

A problem can be caused by many different reasons, and can usually be solved in different ways. A problem is a heavy weight to carry and eventually unless you share the load with someone, it will eventually get you down. Believe us, everyone has problems, your not alone, and those that share them find the problem becomes easier. In fact, you wont even be the first one to talk about them, so let us help you sort them out. Below are some of the most common problems we all face..

ABUSE

I bet you want to know what abuse is?  Well abuse can happen in many ways, but let me explain some of them.

NEGLET

Neglect is when someone fails to provide the right care and attention to a child

BULLYING

Let us tell you about bullying and help you understand why it's never OK

INTERNET

It's time to learn about being safe online

CODES OF CONDUCT

Longridge Town Juniors have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the game.

In the Football Associations survey of 37,000 grassroots participants, behaviour was the biggest concern in the game. This included the abuse of match officials and the unacceptable behaviour of over competitive parents, spectators and coaches on the sidelines.

At the club we expect all participants to abide by the appropriate code of conduct.

POLICIES

In order to maintain the highest standard of care to our players, the club has implemented the following policies...

FA RESPECT

Respect it the FA's programme to address unacceptable bahavioud in football, both on and off the pitch.

On average, thousands of referees quit football every year, because of the abuse they receive from palyers and from the sidelines. Lots of children also pack it in because of the attitude and actions of over-enthusiastic and pushy parents. Many parents are not even aware of this.

Please take a look at the FA respect video, and see if you recognise anyone in it.
