Social Media & Digital Devices Update

Rutherglen Amateur Swimming Club has seen an increased rise in enquiries and concerns regarding the inappropriate use of Mobile Phones and Social Media and the taking/recording of inappropriate images.

As Child Protection Officer for the Club I am receiving more and more complaints from parents making me aware of incidents re inappropriate language, behaviour and bullying via Social Media.

Rutherglen Amateur Swimming Club finds this behaviour totally UNACCEPTABLE and it WILL NOT be tolerated. For those found to be involved in such conduct then sanctions maybe imposed upon them.

Can I therefore ask ALL parents to share the below safety advice and speak with your child/ren regarding such behaviours making them aware of the consequences should they be found to be participating/inciting/encouraging same.

To support you in addressing this increase of social media/digital device related incidents Scottish Swimming has the following advice, and recommends the use of resources from who provide expert advice in this area

Assistance Required – Child Protection/Welfare Officer

February 25th, 2018

The Club is currently looking for an additional Child Protection/Welfare Officer to assist our current CPO who has been carrying out the role for 4 years. Previous experience in working/dealing with children is helpful but not essential as training is provided.

The role of the Child Protection Officer is varied ranging from:
• Implementing Policy & Procedure
• Carrying out administrative work associated with processing information on new volunteers/staff
• Liaising closely with Club volunteers/staff ensuring that agreed procedures for the prevention of risk are followed
• Counsel and advise Club on matters of policy relating to Child Protection
• Raise awareness of Child Protection with parents/cares/volunteers and children involved in the Club
• Challenge behaviours which breaches Code of Conduct
• Organise/signpost appropriate training for all adults working/volunteering with children in the Club
• Respond appropriately to disclosures or concerns which relate to the well-being of a child.
• Maintain confidential records of reported cases and action taken.

Whilst the above might sound overwhelming it is not as bad as it actually may sound (honestly).
The role is essential to the running of the Club and is extremely worthwhile and rewarding.

If interested then please contact our current CPO (Amanda Kennedy) direct at the following E mail address:

Rutherglen volunteers’ success

February 17th, 2018

Rutherglen volunteers stepped up with great success today at the West District Long Course Championships Round 2 at Tollcross and the South Lanarkshire Development Meet 2 at Larkhall.

Particular thanks to Karen and Paul Stewart as team managers at Tollcross along with our technical officials. A small band of helpers also ensured that our round of the South Lanarkshire Development Meet ran very well – Angela McGhee, AnnMarie Docherty, Alison Forrest, Jennifer Gaffney, Alexa Crawford and our perennial meet manager, Mike Perceval-Maxwell, and Jori Horn who had been swimming at Tollcross in the morning, plus again those timekeepers who stepped in to handle the Dolphin System so well.

Thank you to all for today, and any I may have missed.

Tommorrow continues with Day 2 of the West District Long Course Championships Round 2 where Susan McFarlane is due to take over as team manager. Thanks in advance to Susan and again to our technical officials.
