The health and safety of all young people within the care of Shield Academy is paramount. The club follows the FA’s guidelines for welfare, in order to make sure that Shield is the safest football club in England.
It is now mandatory that every youth football club in the United Kingdom have a Club Welfare Officer (CWO), assisted with Child Protection Officers. Shield Academy are no exception. We are dedicated to ensuring that the club is in line with the latest legislation and updates concerning Child Welfare. Our CWO & Assistants are both Child Protection and Welfare Trained.
Underneath you can find various pieces of literature on safeguarding . We hope that these are found to be useful and accurate.
