British Gymnastics welfare and safeguarding procedures

As the Governing Body British Gymnastics have set up a welfare and safeguarding policy which all recognised clubs and coaches must follow to ensure the safety of all those involved within the sport. You can find this policy on the British Gymnastics website.

One of the key documents our welfare team use to report incidents to British Gymnastics is the British Gymnastics  Safeguarding Incident Reporting Form. If you wish to report anything to British Gymnastics directly, please refer to their document and policy first.

Notts Gymnastics Academy has an open-door policy and that if you are feeling unsure or concerned (or even have an 'odd feeling’ about something) we would encourage you will speak with our experienced welfare team prior to contacting British Gymnastics. If you are unsure about the reporting process here is what British Gymnastics describe as their reporting process.
