After a lengthy evaluation process the Club is pleased to say that our Clubmark accreditation has been renewed for a further five years.
Clubmark was introduced by Sport England some years ago to recognise and value the commitment made by sports clubs to develop high quality, welcoming environments for all people and particularly for young participants. It provides a framework of common standards which should help clubs to encourage those with an interest in taking up sport, especially young people.
The scheme is built around a set of core criteria which ensure that accredited clubs operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted minimum operating standards. It is now universally recognised, and is promoted and
branded, by Sport England and is endorsed by all the main sporting, youth and education agencies involved in delivery of sporting opportunity for young people.
Clubmark applies to all sports, with accreditation normally being achieved through the National Governing Body (NGB), in our case British Rowing. Accreditation is achieved through detailed evaluation of a number of criteria under the headings of:
- The club’s participation programme.
- Duty of care and safeguarding and protecting children.
- Knowing your club and its community.
- Club management.
