Policies, Procedures and Safety
When choosing a school holiday childcare provider you need to know that all relevant policies and procedures surrounding your childs stay at Active Camps is in place.
This section outlines the key policy, procedures and safety information that all parents should expect their school holiday childcare provider to be adhering to.
Registration for all activities will be signposted at each Active Camps venue. We ask you to register at least 10 minutes prior to the pre-booked start time. It is essential that a parent/guardian registers and signs out their child. If another adult is collecting your child, or you are collecting your child before the pre-booked pick up time then please inform the Active Camps Co-ordinator. This is important, as sign out is not available under normal circumstances until 15 minutes prior to pick up.
Please inform the Active Camps Co-ordinator if another adult will collect your child or if you are collecting your child before the pre-booked pick up time.
At the end of the day children must be signed out by an authorised adult. If your child is allowed to travel to and from camp by themselves they will require written authorisation on the Camp Attendance Form.
Child protection statement
Aspire Active Camps believe that it is always unacceptable for a child or young person to experience abuse of any kind and recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people, by a commitment to practice which protects them.
A copy of our full Child Protection Policy is made available for you at each venue. However, you may wish to read over it prior to booking your child into Active Camps. Contact us if you wish to do this and we'll happily provide you with a copy.
Equal opportunities statement
We welcome children of all religious beliefs, faiths, cultures and abilities and believe that each child attending the camp is of equal value. The activities that we run strive to provide equal opportunities for all the children whatever their race, religion, language, culture, gender, health, disability, personality or lifestyle – according to the framework laid down by the following acts:
- Sex Discrimination Act (SDA) 1975
- Race Relations Act (RRA) 1976
- Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000
- Disability Discrimination Act 1995
- Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974
- Equal Pay Act 1970 (amended 1983)
Education and understanding of other people's needs and backgrounds will be fostered to promote positive behaviour and attitudes. Discriminating behaviour, attitudes and comments will be challenged, regardless of whether they are from members, staff or parent/carers. We will regularly review our policy and amend it where necessary.
Our Anti-Bullying Statement is available for you to see at each camp venue. If you'd prefer to read it prior to attending then please contact us for a copy.
Our Behaviour Code of Conduct is available to see at each camp venue. Alternatively, you may contact us to view this policy.
We would expect you to inform us both verbally and via your booking of any potential behaviour issues that would help us deal with your child whilst at Active Camps. You should be aware of the expected behaviour when your child attends camp and we would expect you to support any action taken by our staff to encourage good behaviour.
Concerns and complaints policy
Our Concerns and Complaints Policy is available to see at each camp venue. Alternatively, you may contact us to view it and ask any further questions.
