Standards for safeguarding and protecting children in sport - Update

These Standards provide a framework for all those involved in sport to help them create a safe sporting environment for children and young people and protect them from harm.

The Standards for safeguarding and protecting children in sport (PDF) also seek to provide a benchmark to help those involved in sport make informed decisions, and to promote good practice and challenge poor practice.

The 2018 update brings the document in line with changes in legislation, government guidance and safeguarding practice. It also includes some changes in light of evaluation and the application of the standards by a significant number of sports bodies and county sports partnerships.

The 10 standards

  1. Policy and procedures for responding to concerns
  2. Operating systems
  3. Prevention
  4. Codes of ethics and conduct
  5. Equity
  6. Communication
  7. Education and training
  8. Access to advice and support
  9. Implementation and monitoring
  10. Influencing


Standard 10 was introduced in 2006 to reflect the changes within sport and the growing role some sports organisations have in influencing the delivery of local sports.
