Child protection policy statement

The policy recognises that the welfare and interests of children are paramount in all circumstances. It aims to ensure that regardless of  age, ability or disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation, socio-economic background, all children


have a positive and enjoyable experience of sport at Sprint Martial Arts LLP in a safe and child centred environment

are protected from abuse whilst participating in Martial Arts classes of Sprint Martial Arts LLP or outside of the activity.

Sprint Martial Arts LLP acknowledges that some children, including disabled children and young people or those from ethnic minority communities, can be particularly vulnerable to abuse and we accept the responsibility to take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure their welfare.   


As part of our safeguarding policy Sprint Martial Arts LLP will
