Terms & Conditions
1.MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT
We cannot accept children under the age of four to any of our Clubs/Holiday camps. If a child is suspected to not meet the above, we reserve the right to request proof of age. We also reserve the right to refuse entry and/or ask the child/children to be collected immediately, no refund/credit will be available.
Get Active Staff are not trained in personal care or expected to be involved in any areas of personal care or toileting. Where young children may have ‘accidents’ parents should inform Get Active staff during the booking process and devise a plan for such eventualities and how they will be dealt with Children who are not toilet trained and/or in pull ups/nappies cannot be assisted in any toileting by our staff.
In general the principal in these circumstances will be that staff verbally support the child to clean themselves. Therefore it is expected that parents/carers will have trained their children to be clean and dry by the time they arrive at a Get Active Sports Provision.
Get Active Sports aim to provide care that is as inclusive as possible. The needs of each child vary greatly, we aim to support all children giving them access to the same opportunities to enjoy our services. It is important that we are fully informed of any child with additional needs, whether that be behavioural, medical or physical so we can try and support them in the best way possible. We ask that you make us aware of these needs by notifying us when registering online and by contacting our office team before placing your booking. We do not offer 1 to 1 support as standard service. If your child requires 1 to 1 support, we would need prior notice to try and arrange this. If a 1-1 is required, this will incur an additional staffing cost and the cost of the session/s you wish to book. https://www.getactivesports.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/SEN-and-Inclusion-Policy-2019-1.pdf
