Please read the following information carefully and ensure that you and your child are aware of the high expectations of behaviour at Ainsty GTC and the importance we place on the safety and care of everyone.
On arrival children need to go to the
appropriate Meeting Point. A coach will come and collect the children and take them into the hall.
The lesson will begin with a warm up and a stretch which will take 15 to 20 minutes and during this time a register will be taken. If a child misses the warm up, they will not be able to take part in the lesson until they have done their own warm up.
Children's Code of Conduct
Coaches are asked to ensure they establish clear structures and boundaries in classes. Whether they are a Sports Helper or a Coach they are in charge of the children and must ensure that they have high expectations with regards to behaviour.
Parent's Code of Conduct
It is important for parents/guardians/responsible adults to be respectful as well. They also have a code of conduct:
Departure of children
Children must leave with an adult and they must not leave the building while they are waiting for an adult to arrive. If any child has not been picked up and there is no-one available to be with them in reception then they can sit in the hall and wait. If a child is allowed to walk home unaccompanied, then please let a member of staff know before the lesson.
AGTC - General Safety Guidelines and Child Safety
All coaches and helpers are DBS checked and have undertaken Safeguarding and Protecting Children Training
Trampoline Safety Code
In some cases all the rules and expectations are difficult for children to adhere to. All staff will be as patient and tolerant with children who find it difficult to keep themselves safe. In the event that a child is not following instructions they will warned that their behaviour cannot continue. If the child continues to be unsafe or is spoiling the class for the other students, then they will be asked to stop and sit out until such time as they are ready to continue and follow all the instructions given.
If a child continues to misbehave after returning to the class they will be removed from the class by the manager/head coach. They will receive a final warning and return to the class if it is safe to do so. A child will remain out of class until such time that it is deemed safe enough for them to return.
If a child has to be suspended from the class for the rest of the time, parents will be phoned to come and collect them early. Parents will be informed of the situation and the concerns around safety. The child will then go down on report. If a child is on report they must behave for 4 sessions without any safety concerns being raised before being taken off report. If after 4 sessions there have been no incidents or concerns, then they will come off report and continue to behave. If during this time the behaviour remains a cause for concern then the child will be asked to leave and the membership will end. Ainsty GTC has a no refund policy after a child has been at the club for more than 2 weeks.
Ainsty GTC reserves the right not to enrol any child on the next term who has been deemed to be disruptive, dangerous, aggressive or disrespectful.
We aim to have a staff to child ratio of 1:8 in all our classes. There will always be a senior/head coach on site. However, if a situation arises where members of staff are not able to able to attend a session and we are unable to find cover, we will continue to run the session if we consider it safe to do so. We would not exceed a coaching ratio of 1:12.
