Our Child Protection Policy
We in Ceoltóirí Chluain Tarbh want to make sure that all children and young people who come to our organisation are safe and are protected from harm. we are committed to ensuring their safety and welfare at all times in accordance with Children First - National Guidelines for Participation and Welfare of Children and Our Duty to Care - The Principles of Good Practice for the Protection of Children and Young People published by the Department of Health and Children.
Children and young people have a right to:
- Be safe
- Be listened to
- Be treated with fairness and respect
- Be free from bullying
- Get help and support if you’ve been hurt, neglected or badly treated
- Enjoy participating in the organisation in a friendly and learning environment
The importance of child protection is recognised in the constitution of Ceoltóirí Chluain Tarbh and every member, including anyone working in any capacity for our organisation, respects these rights. This policy applies also to children participating in events promoted by us but who are themselves not members of our organisation.
If you or a parent or anyone is worried that a child or young person is being hurt, bullied or abused, they should talk to one of our designated persons.
Our teaching classes and events are organised in a manner to ensure the safety of children. Our teachers and activity organisers are required to comply fully with our child protection policies, including adhering to operational guidelines on procedures to be followed in the course of classes, activities and events promoted by us.
