27.02.20 Parents Leaving Children at Clubs
Recently we’ve given safeguarding advice to 2 sports clubs outside of the martial arts. The issue related to
parents leaving their children at the clubs BEFORE the lesson had actually started in addition to parents also not
collecting children on time after the lesson. The advice given is the same as we give to CMAA members, as
1. Set a minimum age at which parents can actually leave their children, 11yrs old for example.
2. Inform parents that responsibility for their children remains with them until the lesson actually starts and
resumes the moment it ends.
