We are really pleased to be welcoming you back to our Sports Development programme running across East Renfrewshire. Your child’s participation is greatly appreciated and we are sure that they will love being active and learn lots with our coaching team. Your child’s wellbeing and safety continues to be our number one priority and the following will help us to achieve this.
We would ask you kindly on arrival, if by car, to follow the traffic system in place adhering to the speed limit and that you park your car in a designated parking space or use the drop off zone as appropriate. Likewise, that the zebra crossing points are used to access the school facilities.
Drop off and Collection:
Parent/ carers are now able to drop off / collect children within the venues we use. However, please ensure, where possible, that you do not wait within the venue, once you have dropped your children off unless previously agreed with Officers or Coordinators.
Signing In & Signing Out
Please note all children must be signed in and out by a parent/carer – our coaching team will not dismiss children to cars or let them away with siblings under the age of 16. If your child is old enough to walk home, then written permission must be submitted in advance to be agreed, so the coaching team can then be advised accordingly by Officers or Coordinators.
Toilet access is permitted within all of the venues that we will be operating from. However, at times, we may be restricted to the number of toilets designated to ourselves, allowing for cleaning and sanitising to take place.
We would therefore ask and actively encourage that all participants go to the toilet before attending their class.
If you have booked your child(ren) onto one of our outdoor sessions. We ask the following:
• Ensure your child(ren) come prepared for inclement weather (tracksuit, jacket, hat, gloves, sun hat, sun screen etc).
• Wear appropriate footwear for the surface the activity is being delivered on.
• You are contactable, during the booked class time, in the event of cancellation during the session.
It is not necessary for your child(ren) to bring any specific sports equipment to our classes. All equipment is provided.
Sports Classes – Allergies
A number of participants and staff within our programme suffer from allergies. People who suffer from allergies can develop a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. For example, if someone has a nut allergy, which is airborne, it is not just eating nuts that can cause a severe reaction; just being touched on the skin or smelling the breath of someone who has had nuts or a product containing nuts can trigger anaphylactic shock. This can cause breathing and swallowing difficulties which can sometimes be fatal.
We would ask that your child does not attend with any nut products as a snack to any of our programmes.
This list is not exhaustive, so please check the packaging of products closely.
All product packaging must be checked for warnings directed at allergy sufferers and if the following or similar are displayed, the product must not be brought or eaten directly before a class:
• Not suitable for nut allergy
• This product contains nuts
• This product may contain traces of nuts
Thank you and best wishes,
