Anti Bullying Policy

Bullying is not tolerated in any form

As a Club we are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our members so that they can swim in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our club.

If bullying does occur, all swimmers or parents are encouraged to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a TELLING Club. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell the Club Welfare Officer or any Committee member, or contact the ASA Swimline 0808 100 4001.

Bullying hurts. No one deserves to be a victim of bullying. Everyone has the right to be treated with respect. As a Club we take bullying seriously – swimmers and parents are assured that they would be supported if bullying is reported.
