Online Code of Conduct

In addition to the usual safeguarding policy, the following Code of Conduct applies when meeting ‘virtually’ through video conferencing. 

Code of conduct:

  • Clothing - If clothing would not be appropriate for an in-person event it isn't appropriate for an online event. If the leader considers a participant’s attire to be unsuitable, the participants involvement will be terminated and the reason communicated to the participant. 
  • Background - participants must think about what is visible in the background of their video feed, considering what may be offensive to others. Participants should also consider what their background may be telling other people about themselves, and must avoid displaying any personal details. If the leader considers a participant’s background to be unsuitable, the participants involvement will be terminated and the reason communicated to the participant. 
  • Parental/carer supervision - participants should keep the door to the room they are in open so that they can be seen by their parents/carers if necessary.
