Photography & Videography

We look forward to celebrating and/or publicising footballing successes by photographing and videoing our players across our delivery experiences.

By registering and signing up to a Future Football Elite course you are confirming you have read our policies and terms and conditions are granting permission for your son/daughter to be photographed/videoed for use across our social media platforms and website.

Should you wish to not grant this permission please communicate this with us prior to your son/daughter commencing attendance.

At Future Football Elite we have a responsibility to put in place arrangements to ensure that any official or professional photographer can identify (or be informed about) which children should not be subject to close-up photography or filming.

Anti Bullying

We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our members so they can participate in football in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.

Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at any Future Football Elite programme. If bullying does occur, all club members or parents should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively.

We have a TELLING environment. This means anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell a member of FFE staff.

Health & Safety

Covid 19 Policy

FFE's COVID-19 Policy remains an on-going and flexible policy based on the guidance of government, local authority, governing bodies and venues.

We have been updating our COVID-19 policy to include all site operating procedures. We have considered what protective measures can be implemented in accordance with government advice.

No player, parent, member of staff or volunteer should attend any FFE activity should they be showing any signs/symptoms of COVID 19.

All equipment and surfaces will be cleaned throughout sessions and after each session.
Parents are asked to arrive 5 minutes before sessions and to remain in their car if they arrive early.
Anyone who arrives early will be turned away from the premises and be asked to return at the allocated time.
Anyone showing symptoms of Covid-19 will be asked to leave their session and wait with a member of staff to be collected.
This member of staff will be in full protective PPE and will be socially distanced away from others.

ALL staff and parents must not return to Future Football Elite without proof of a negative covid-19 test.

Should a child or member of staff test positive our Future Football Elite track and trace service will be used.
