WIT Arena Child Protection policy
WIT Arena is committed to best practice in relation to a Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport as outlined by Sport Ireland and TULSA.
WIT Arenas policies are aligned with Sport Ireland Children’s First and TULSA Children’s First.
ALL Cameras are strictly forbidden in the building unless prior consent is given for usage. WIT Arena forbids any and all photography / imaging equipment in areas of child activity in the interest of Child Safety and member comfort.
Child abuse can be categorised into four different types: neglect, emotional abuse, physical abuse and sexual abuse. A child may be subjected to one or more forms of abuse at any given time. Abuse and neglect can occur within the family, in the community or in an institutional setting.
The important factor in deciding whether the behaviour is abuse or neglect is the impact of that behaviour on the child rather than the intention of the parent/carer.
Child neglect is the most frequently reported category of abuse, both in Ireland and internationally
The following are features of child neglect:
Emotional abuse may be seen in some of the following ways:
Physical abuse can include the following:
Sexual abuse occurs when a child is used by another person for his or her gratification or arousal, or for that of others.
Examples of child sexual abuse include the following:
It is important that our code of behaviour reflects the child centred ethos of WIT Arena:
It is also important for the protection of all concerned that instructors, teachers, children and young people have guidelines on what is expected and what is not accepted, with respect to their behaviour.
WIT Arena strives to make the facility a safe environment for children through rules, practises, training and policies.
