Safeguarding advice for Parents and Carers of Taekwondo participants.
If you’re worried or concerned about any aspect of your child’s involvement in Taekwondo, you’ll find the answers to some frequently asked questions in this section.
There are also details of how to contact us for any other information you might need.
Parents play a pivotal role in encouraging and supporting their child’s participation, success and fun when participating in taekwondo. It’s your right as a parent, or carer, to be able to check how well a club is run, for the sake of your child’s safety and your peace of mind.
If you’re worried that your child or another child is being abused or put at risk during training it’s crucial that you talk to someone. The idea of speaking out about abuse or poor practice in a club setting can be daunting as you will most likely feel worried about the impact on you and/or your child but it is imperative that you take action as you will be safeguarding your child, other children and even children who arrive in the future.
To report a concern, you can visit the Reporting page and find out more information there. We also have a page that has all our policies relating to safeguarding. There is also a page specifically designed for children to help them identify if they need to speak with someone, and who that should be.
If you can’t find the information you’re looking for, or your questions are unanswered, you can contact us with any concerns you have and we will do our best answer them, or get in touch with the people who can.
If you have an urgent query and you believe there is an immediate risk to the safety of a child or adult at risk please report directly to the Police or Children’s Social Care.
