Any young match official under the age of 18 is classed as a child and must be cared for in the correct manner.
It is vital that we provide children in our Junior Development Squad with the best possible experiences and rugby opportunities. Everyone involved with working with children must operate within an accepted ethical framework and demonstrate exemplary behaviour to ensure the game makes a positive contribution to children’s development, safeguards them and promotes their welfare, as well as protecting all personnel from allegations of abuse or poor practice.
The Society has a dedicated Safeguarding Officer (See Key Contacts) and all Assessors and Advisors working with our Junior Development Squad are DBS checked and are fully aware of their responsibilities under the KSRFUR Safeguarding Policy and Procedures

This document sets out the key safeguarding principles as well as providing best practice guidance to all Society members.
