We require written consent to administer any medication.  If your child requires prescribed medication it is recommended that you obtain a spare inhaler/epipen/Piriton etc. so that one can remain on site with us. If your child requires medication and they do not bring it with them you may be refused entry – your child’s safety is our paramount concern.

First aid is always administered by a qualified first aider, who will decide the most appropriate course of action. A written accident report will be available to the parent on collection. Should a child need to go to hospital their parents will be immediately contacted. An escort will be provided if the parents are unable to get to the club.

Security 

All children will be signed and timed in and out on a register. Children may be collected at any time during the session. Children may only be collected by a nominated person otherwise it is vital that you let the club know if a different person is to collect.

All concerns should be made to the Club Manager or directly to Claires Court. If you wish to take matters further, please visit the School's Complaint Procedure for further guidance.
