Safeguarding Policy


  • All of our coaching staff are DBS Checked, with the necessary qualifications and documents required in order to run sessions safely. It is our main priority to ensure that our clients and coaches feel safe and comfortable at all times whilst working with us. 
  • Our coaches are qualified with the essential first aid training, with competence in dealing with minor injuries and taking necessary measures to ensure the safety and well being of the concerned individual. 
  • We are insured with Gallagher's Insurance, providing multiple forms of cover in order to support for our staff members and players should any unwanted injuries or incidents take place. 
  • Our lead coaches have completed their "SafeGuarding Young Cricketers Certificate", a certificate issued by the English & Wales Cricket Board. 



The safety and comfort of our players is our main priority at the Cricket School Of Excellence. We ensure that our facilities are completely safe at all times, with consistent checks on equipment, as well as making sure the field and nets are safe for action. We want our players to feel as though they're at ease when in our company, by using a calm approach, whereby we encourage our players to have a say in the session plan to some extent! We encourage our players to express themselves, and let us know if they feel uncomfortable with any situation during our sessions. it is our duty to  provide the parent/carer with feedback should such a situation occur.  

      • Anti - Bullying Policy: CSE is committed to providing a caring, friendly, and safe environment for all of our players so that they can train and play in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable within our environment. If bullying does occur, all members should be able to tell and know incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. The Cricket School Of Excellence takes any bullying seriously. We take bullying of children particularly seriously and children and parent/ guardians should be assured that they will be supported when bullying is reported.
      • Photography & Videography Policy: CSE wishes to ensure photography and video footage taken within cricket is done so appropriately. Parents and carers should not be prevented from taking pictures of, or filming, their children. These are normal family practices and help mark milestones in a child’s life. However, the introduction of proportionate controls on the use of photographic equipment (cameras, and videos, including mobile phones) is part of general safeguarding good practice. Similarly, there is no intention to prevent CSE coaches using video equipment as a legitimate coaching aid.  This material will be treated as confidential and deleted/destroyed when parents request this or when no longer needed.
      • Missing Child Policy: If a child for whom CSE has responsibility goes missing, the following steps will be taken by the coach, officials, and team managers: 1.) Ensure the other children in their care are looked after appropriately while a search is organised for the child concerned. 2). Inform the child’s parents/legal guardians, if they are present, or nominate an appropriate person to telephone them and advise them of the concern. Reassure the parents/legal guardians that CSE is doing all it can to locate the child. Ask the parents/legal guardians to notify the club if the child contacts them. 3.) Organise all available responsible adults by area to be searched. It is best to take a short time to organise the search properly so that all places are searched fully. 4.) Send searchers immediately to any exits to the venue to ensure the child has not left, and to any obvious potential danger spots such as nearby lakes or rivers. 5.) If all resources have been exhausted, notify the police with required identification details of the concerned child. 
      • Parents & Carers Expectation Policy: Bring the child you are caring for to registration at all training sessions, to register and inform person taking the register who to contact in case of emergency during that session. Collect the child you are caring for from the end of the session – CSE will not check the children out; it is expected that you will collect them unless person taking the register at the start is notified otherwise. Encourage your child to learn the rules and play within them. Discourage unfair play and arguing with officials. Help your child to recognise good performance, not just results. Never force your child to take part in sport. Set a good example by recognising fair play and applauding the good performances of all. Never punish or belittle a child for losing or making mistakes. Publicly accept officials’ judgements. Support your child’s involvement and help them to enjoy their sport. Show respect for the coaches, managers, accepting with good grace decisions on all issues. Use correct and proper language at all times. Never condone rule violations, rough play, or the use of prohibitive substances.Encourage and guide performers to accept responsibility for their own performance and behaviour. Pay subscriptions and session fees promptly.

  • Helmet.
  • Batting Pads.
  • Batting Gloves.
  • Abdomen Guard.
  • Trainers.
