BSCC WELFARE POLICY
Bishop’s Stortford Cricket Club recognizes the need to ensure the welfare and safety of all Young People in Cricket. As part of this commitment we will not permit photographs/video images of Young People to be taken or used without the consent of the Parent/Guardian and the Young Player. The Club will follow the guidance issued by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on the use of images of Young People which is available on www.Play-Cricket.comand www.ecb.co.uk.
The Club will take steps to ensure that these images are used solely for the purpose they are intended, which is the promotion and celebration of the Club’s cricketing activities. If you become aware that these images are being used inappropriately you should inform the Club Welfare Officer immediately.
If photograph, e.g. team or action shots, are submitted to the press or published on the Club website individuals will not be identified. In circumstances where there is a need to identify an individual player in the press parental permission will be sought beforehand.
TRANSPORT TO MATCHES AND PRACTICE SESSIONS
Bishop’s Stortford Cricket Club policy is that parents or other responsible adults are responsible for transporting players to and from all matches and practice sessions and therefore the Club will not be registering vrivate vehicles for the transportation of individuals in connection with any fixtures or practice sessions arranged by the Club. The implementation of this policy is not intended to exclude any player from participation and parents or guardians should contact The Club Welfare Officer if they have any problems with the transportation of players to matches or practices sessions.
