This Child Safety Code of Conduct (Code) outlines appropriate standards of behaviours by adults towards children (children). This Code aims to protect children and reduce any opportunities for abuse or harm to occur. It assists the Board, management, staff, participants and volunteers by providing them with guidance on how to best support children and how to avoid or better manage difficult situations. All members of the Board, management, staff, participants and volunteers are required to comply. All members of the Board, management, staff, participants and volunteers are responsible for promoting the safety and wellbeing of children and young people by: • Adhering to our Commitment to Child Safety; • Treating everyone with respect, including listening to and valuing their ideas and opinions; • Welcoming all children and their families and carers through being inclusive; and • Respecting cultural, religious and political differences and acting in a culturally sensitive way. Members of the Board, management, staff, participants and volunteers must NOT: • Ignore or disregard any concerns, suspicions or disclosures of child abuse; • Use prejudice, oppressive behaviour or language with children; • Engage in rough physical games; • Discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, culture, vulnerability or sexuality; • Initiate unnecessary physical contact with children including doing things of a personal nature that children can do for themselves, such as toileting or changing clothes; • Develop ‘special’ relationships with specific children or show favouritism through the provision of gifts or inappropriate attention; • Exchange personal contact details such as phone number, social networking profiles/ accounts or email addresses with children outside the normal course of business at Triathlon Victoria or its clubs; and • Have unauthorised contact with children and young people online or by phone. I have read Triathlon Victoria’s Statement of Commitment to Safeguarding Children and Young People and this Code and agree to abide by it at all times.
I asked Nadelle from TriVic advice on the photo permission. Here is her reply.
If Nuna wishes to take photos of your club members/athletes etc for use in social media or other marketing collateral, then you will need to add a special clause in your Clubs Terms and Conditions.
At Triathlon Australia, basically each event we run has a special clause (sometimes the wording may just differ slightly) in the event registration T&C’s. Wording along the lines of…
“…I consent to TV (Triathlon Victoria) using my name, image and likeness before, during or after the event for promotional broadcasting or reporting purposes in any media.”
If I change it to by not ticking this box I consent to Nunawading Tri Club using my name, image and likeness before, during or after the event for promotional broadcasting or reporting purposes in any media.
And have it as an opt out when joining? I can then send out a instructions for people to log in and opt out on GO if they desire. We can also get acknowledgment of the child safety code of conduct at the same time as it will be in the same place. What do you think?
