Welcome to the Safeguarding section of the Rounders England website
Rounders England is the National Governing Body for the sport of Rounders in England, and as part of its commitment to ensuring that young people and adults at risk are able to enjoy the sport of Rounders, we have developed our policy and guidance on Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Rounders and our Safeguarding Adults Policy & Procedures.
Rounders England Achieve Advanced Standard
In 2013 Rounders England were successful in achieving the National Advanced Standard of the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) safeguarding standards. This is an important piece of work which gives a clear message that Rounders is committed to Safeguarding and that we will continue to embed good practice across the sport.
Rounders England is committed to ensuring that everyone who participates in Rounders has a safe and positive experience. Following the achievement of the National Advanced Standard, Rounders England carries out an annual comprehensive self-assessment in collaboration with the CPSU and have achieved a ‘green’ RAG rating every year since.
In September 2017 Rounders England worked with the Ann Craft Trust (ACT) to develop our Safeguarding Adults in Sport policy.
