Procedure for dealing with Inappropriate behaviour

In the event that any Parent, Guardian or other interested party is of the opinion that they have witnessed unacceptable behaviour during a Clontarf Swim swimming class this should immediately be reported to any of the members of the team of Clontarf Swim. Specific details of the incident including details of all parties involved should be provided to a relevant swim teacher. That swimming teacher will detail to the interested party how they propose to deal with the situation and keep contact with the interested party with regard to progress on resolving the issue. That Swim Teacher will subsequently talk with all the people involved in the reported incident.  The Swim Teacher will try to reach an agreement about what happened between those involved, highlighting the inappropriate behaviour and detailing acceptable behaviour in Clontarf Swim classes. The swim teacher may, if necessary, decide to inform both parents of the parties involved and to formally make a note of the incident.

If an issue has not been resolved, or it continues after an attempt to resolve the behaviour at the time, then the issue will be escalated to a Senior member of the Clontarf Swim for further action.  In order to resolve the inappropriate behaviour it will be necessary for the Senior member of staff to know who is involved i.e. the person or group who have allegedly behaved in the inappropriate behaviour, the target of the behaviour and any others who may have been present at the time, i.e. any witnesses. The person who has identified the inappropriate behaviour should provide names and details for all parties to the incident. The Senior Member of staff will subsequently assess the incident based on available information and inform any responsible parties of the outcome. If the inappropriate behaviour is not resolved, it may be the case that sanctions are imposed on those involved and sanctions can be up to and including suspension or expulsion.  

 

If it is the case that a Swim Teacher witnesses inappropriate behaviour during a swimming class then that Swim Teacher will talk with all the people involved in the inappropriate behaviour. The Swim Teacher will do this as soon as is practical subsequent to becoming aware of the issue. The Swim Teacher will try to reach an agreement about what happened between those involved, highlighting the inappropriate behaviour and detailing acceptable behaviour in Clontarf Swim classes. The swim teacher may, if necessary, decide to inform both parents of the parties involved and to formally make a note of the incident. Our swimming teachers will explain how they propose to deal with the issue and Clontarf Swim expects parents and all adults involved with us to be supportive of the immediate resolution process.  Our Swim Teachers will continue to check that the inappropriate behaviour does not continue by observing the parties involved and by checking in with those involved.

If an issue has not been resolved, or it continues after an attempt to resolve the behaviour at the time, then the issue will be escalated to a Senior member of the Clontarf Swim for further action.  In order to resolve the inappropriate behaviour it will be necessary for the Senior member of staff to know who is involved i.e. the person or group who have allegedly behaved in the inappropriate behaviour, the target of the behaviour and any others who may have been present at the time, i.e. any witnesses. The person who has identified the inappropriate behaviour should provide names and details for all parties to the incident. The Senior Member of staff will subsequently assess the incident based on available information. If the inappropriate behaviour is not resolved, it may be the case that sanctions are imposed on those involved. Sanctions can include suspension or expulsion.
