Safeguarding update

Child protection officers have been sent information describing two changes to the BGA club policy pack template ‘Code of Conduct for Parents/Carers of Young People’ (ie under-18).

Others at gliding clubs may wish to update themselves on the changes, which are that a parent/carer of a young person should expect their permission to be sought before a young person:

– flies on their first solo cross-country flight approved by a qualified BGA instructor

– attends club organised off site activities or expeditions
