Melksham Swordfish is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our members, so that when they participate in club activities, they do so in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.
The club has SwimMark accreditation which is Swim England’s quality standard for clubs. It recognises high standards of governance, sustainability and effectiveness. This is the Swim England’s ‘quality mark’. It recognises nationally and regionally the clubs that are committed to providing safe, effective and quality services for the benefit of their members.
The Welfare Officer is essential in providing a first point of contact for children, parents and adults within the club who have a child safeguarding or welfare concern. In partnership with the club committee, the Welfare Officer ensures that the club is adopting and implementing child safeguarding policy and procedures which are necessary for it to demonstrate its duty of care to children.
Melksham Swordfish fully endorses and operates in accordance with Swim England's Child Protection Policy (Wavepower 2020-2023: Child safeguarding policy and procedures for clubs).
