Next Level Sports requests that parents be punctual in dropping off and collecting children. We also request that parents inform Head Office/Camp Manager when a child will be absent due to illness and other unforeseen circumstances. If no prior notice is given, the Camp Manager will attempt to contact parents in the case of absence.
Parents are asked to tell Head Office/Camp Manager if their child is going to be absent and ask them to provide a reason i.e. they are sick.
We ask parents to contact at the beginning of the day.
Parents can ring or text the camp manager or call head office to inform us if their child is not attending.
If a child doesn’t attend the camp for their sessions, the camp manager or head office would be responsible for contacting the parent to find out the reason why.
We would speak to the parent personally.
If there is no reply and the child does not come to the camp, we would refer to our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy as the welfare of the child is a priority.
LUNCH AND BREAKS
Children need to bring a packed lunch with extra snacks for break times and a refillable drinks bottle. Children have an hour for lunch: the first 30 minutes is spent eating with friends and instructors, and then there’s another 30 minutes to run around, play games, or chill out. We also have two 20-minute breaks – one in the morning and one in the afternoon – during which the children can enjoy their snacks. Lunch and breaks are fully supervised and children are encouraged to eat all of their lunch.
POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Next Level Sports has thorough Policies and Procedures required for the efficient and safe management of our camps, aimed to promote the welfare, care and learning of the children who attend. All Policies & Procedures reflect the statutory guidance in “keeping children safe in education” published in September 2018 by Department for Education.

SAFE GUARDING POLICIES
Next Level Sports are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Background checks and an enhanced DBS will be required.
