The CPSU launches the 2016 Safeguarding Stars awards

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:54

Do you know someone who has gone the extra mile to safeguard children in sport?

The CPSU want to celebrate the outstanding achievements of those within sport that go the extra mile to ensure that children and young people are safeguarded when taking part in sports activities. We want to hear about the achievements of individuals at a club, facility or activity level including examples of why you feel they deserve recognition for their outstanding contribution.

Here are some examples of the work of previous Safeguarding Stars

• Performing many different safeguarding roles, including delivering Welfare Officer training

• Providing practical help and support to a number of clubs in managing safeguarding incidents involving children's welfare

• Spending time visiting clubs and discussing issues always ensuring a child-friendly approach to cases

• Implementing sound safeguarding systems, codes of conduct, support and guidance, and providing monthly briefings to all team managers

• Setting up and developing an inclusive sports squad, catering for young people with varying needs. Disability was not a barrier to involvement.

All nominees will receive an acknowledgment from the CPSU. As in previous years, a panel of young NSPCC supporting sports people will review and select six individuals whose contributions to safeguarding children in their club, organisation or sport stand out in their opinion. Awards to these six nominees will feature at the CPSU national safeguarding event 'Safeguarding in sport: Taking our lead from young people' on 5th October 2016 at Wembley. Further information on this conference will be sent to you shortly.

Please complete the attached nomination form and return it to us by no later than 1st July 2016 or download form https://thecpsu.org.uk/news/2016/april/the-cpsu-launches-2016-safeguarding-star-awards/

Daventry Leisure Centre was the host of the South Northants and Daventry SSP School Games Year 5/6 Swimming Gala on Tuesday 7th June as teams from 16 primary schools around the districts completed for places at the Level 3 Finals.

The event saw teams from Helmdon, Southfield, Pitsford, Guilsborough Crick, Deanshanger, Overstone, Upton Meadows, Brixworth, Woodland View, Brackley Juniors, Ashby Fields, CCS, Bracken Leas, Wootton and Nicholas Hawksmoor compete across 11 different individual and relay races. All the races were kindly supported by club volunteers from Daventry Dolphins Swimming Club, who took on the role of officiating over the races and conducting the timekeeping.

The teams competed across three heats with time from the three then being compared to give an overall position for each event. Teams/swimmers finishing in the top 6 then earnt point towards their team total with 6pts being awarded to 1st place and 1pt given to 6th place. Races included the 4x25m Medley and Freestyle Relays and individual events for boys and girls in breaststroke, butterfly, freestyle and backstroke. The event finished off with the Cannon Relay where 8 swimmers competed for each school.

Once all of the races had finsihed and all of the scores had been counted, it was Nicholas Hawksmoor who claimed victory with 49 points. Last year's district winners Wootton edged 2nd place with 41 points with current County Champions Bracken Leas claiming third with 38 points. Full results of each individual race as well as the overall team scores can be found in the attachment at the bottom of this report.

The SSP would like to thank all of the swimmers, teachers and parents who supported and encouraged everyone during the competition. They would also like to reserve special thanks to all of the volunteers from Daventry Dolphins Swimming Club who without their help, the event would not have been possible.

Good luck to Nicholas Hawksmoor and Wootton as they progress to the School Games Level 3 Swimming Finals at Corby International Pool on Friday 24th June.
