Quinton Fortune Academy
Child Safeguarding Policy

The Quinton Fortune Football Academy makes no apology for stringently following the England Football Association’s child safeguarding policy. This guiding principle is widely regarded as an exceptional strategy that is thoroughly endorsed by Sport England and more importantly the NSPCC.

The Quinton Fortune Football Academy Child Protection Policy statement

Every child or young person, defined as any person under the age of 18, who plays or participates in football & other sports should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in football.

The Quinton Fortune Football Academy recognizes its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people by protecting them from physical, sexual or emotional harm and from neglect or bullying. The Quinton Fortune Football Academy is therefore committed to working to provide a safe environment for all children and young people to participate in the sport to the best of their abilities for as long as they choose to do so.

  • The child's welfare is, and must always be, the paramount consideration.
  • All children and young people have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, gender, disability, culture, language, racial origin, religious beliefs or sexual orientation.
  • All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
  • Working in partnership with other organizations, children, young people, their parents and carers is essential.
