In accordance with current British Fencing Association guidelines the club has appointed a child protection officer/ Welfare Officer. If, at any stage, you have concerns about your child’s safety or that of any other child, and do not wish to discuss it with a coach, please contact the Child Protection Officer/ Welfare Officer. Details are given in the list of club officers. NB. During coaching sessions it may become necessary for the coaches to reposition a fencers hand or leg, this is usually done verbally whenever possible, however there are occasions when the coach may adjust the position themselves, if either a fencer or their parent is concerned about this please speak to the coach to ensure everyone is comfortable with this.
