Policies

Staff have a right to privacy, as do the children and their parents/carers. Personal details will not be discussed except in exceptional circumstances. Staff will not talk about individual incidents or the behaviour of children in front of parents/carers and other children. Staff will not provide information about children to any branch of the media without signed parental permission.

The ratio of staff to children varies depending on the activity. At all times there will be at least two members of staff on each activity. During swimming sessions, there will be one lifeguard for every 20 competent swimmers, 12 if non competent. The lifeguard(s) will do a swim test at the beginning of every session.

Everyone involved in Leighton Park Holiday Activity Scheme, staff children and parents/carers will be made aware of Leighton Park Enterprises stance towards bullying. Such behaviour will not be tolerated or excused under any circumstances.

Leighton Park will ensure that all children are collected by a parent/ carer or designated adult. If for some reason a child is not collected at the stated time, the following procedure will be activated:

  1. If a parent/ carer or designated adult is more than 15 minutes late in collecting their child, the Deputy Commercial Manager will be informed.
  2. The Team Leader will call the parent/ carer or designated adult, and use any other emergency contact details available in order to try to ascertain the cause for the delay, and how long it is likely to last. Messages are left on any answer phone requesting a prompt reply. While waiting to be collected, the child is supervised by at least two members of staff who will offer them as much support and reassurance as is necessary.
  3. If, after repeated attempts, no contact is made with the parent, carer or designated adult, and a further period of 30 minutes has elapsed, the Deputy Commercial Manager will call the local Social Services Department for advice.

In the event of the Social Services being called and responsibility for the child being passed to a child protection agency, the Deputy Commercial Manager will attempt to leave a further telephone message with the parent/ carer or designated adults’ answer phone. Furthermore, a note will be left on the door of the normal pick up point informing the parent/ carer or designated adult of what has happened. The note will reassure them of their child’s safety and instruct them to contact the local Social Services Department.

Under no circumstances will a child be taken to the home of a member of staff, or away from Leighton Park’s premises unless absolutely necessary, in the course of waiting for them to be collected at the end of a session. The child will remain in the care of Leighton Park until they are collected by the parent/ carer or designated adult, or alternatively placed in the care of Social Services.

Incidents of late collection will be recorded by the Deputy Commercial Manager and discussed with parents/ carers at the earliest opportunity. Parents and carers will be informed that persistent late collection may result in the loss of their child’s place at Leighton Park.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of Leighton Park Holiday Activity Scheme and would like to make a complaint, please do so by following our procedure.
