Child Exclusion

We have a responsibility for ensuring the well-being and safety of all children in our care and hold a behaviour management policy (available upon request). We want all children to enjoy our camps, and in order to do so, we follow a zero tolerance policy on discrimination, bullying and persistent poor behaviour of any kind, irresepctve of any special needs.

 

In more serious cases, we reserve the right to ask parents to remove children from camp either for the remainder of the day, or for the rest of the camp with future camp bookings to be discussed. No refund will be made for any remaining days booked, and any costs associated with the exclusion will be the parents responsibility. 

 

We reserve the right to exclude a child at any time prior to or during a session due to illness. The parent/carer will be expected to come and collect their child.

Special requirements

We recognise that the needs of individual children vary, and will seek to accommodate children with specific needs and/or medical conditions within our programme. It is our policy not to exclude any child due to specific needs and/or medical conditions wherever possible.

It is the responsibility of the parent/carer to inform us of any medical conditions and special educational needs or disabilities, when making their booking so we can discuss how best to accommodate the child, and consider whether any reasonable adjustments can be made to ensure they are able to fully participate and enjoy the activities on camp within the staffing ratios provided for their age group. Whilst we are unable to offer one-to-one support, we will always discuss this personally with the parent/carer..

 

The needs of each child vary so decisions are made on a case-by-case basis and depend upon the level of support each individual child may require.

We are not able to provide additional staff to support a child above our standard ratios, irrespective of any specific needs or medical conditions. Where we feel that a child is not coping within these ratios and our camps days, we reserve the right to ask the parent/carer to come and collect their child. No refund will be available.

Where a child does require one-to-one support, we will permit parents/carers to attend to support their child, providing that all documentation is provided to us and a telephone call  has been made to us to discuss this, to ensure that the parent/carer is aware of our policies and procedures. We do not provide one-to-one support. We are happy to accommodate a child with specific needs on a paid trial basis and reserve the right to review further bookings.

Feedback and Complaints Procedure

We take all complaints seriously and work closely with you to resolve any complaint that you may make. 

 

If you would like to make a complaint, please first raise this with the camp manager or your child's group leader who will feedback & discuss with Ashley Thomas, Managing Director. We will follow up with you within 2 working days to discuss and attempt to resolve your complaint. You are also able to email us directly on hello@superstarcampz.co.uk with your complaint or call us on 0800 002 9571.

 

Please note: It is very important that you report any issues or complaints to the camp manager / your child's group leader prior to leaving the camp, where possible. 

Copies of complaints are kept on file for 3 years and are readily available to OFSTED should they request. 

We have a very strict policy where all incidents and injuries are logged and stored with us, through incident report forms and accident report forms. These are completed by the camp manager at the time of an incident / injury occurring and the child's parent / guardian is informed at the end of the day where they must sign the form. 

We are always open to suggestions and feedback to help us improve our programme. We welcome reviews and suggestions via email :)

 

Programme and activities

From time to time, we may need to change venues, dates, activities and courses for reasons within or outside our control. 

We display all of our camp activities in the reception area each day, so that parents and children can see what they will be enjoying throughout the day. These are subject to change in the event of unsuitable weather or other circumstances beyond our control. 

When booking individual days, we cannot guarantee these activities will fall on those particular days. 

 

Safeguarding

We have a strict safeguarding policy in place to ensure the safety and well being of all children participating in our camps. Should we feel the need to take action we may take the following steps:

 

1) Discuss as a team confidentially the best way to approach the situation and inform our safeguarding officer 

2) Report to the local services

3) Take advice from the NSPCC

4) Call the police if we feel a child is in immediate danger

 

For our full safeguarding policy, please email us directly. We may not report safeguarding and welfare matters to you relating to your child, if we feel that your child may be in danger or it may make the situation worse. We will always take advice on this and act accordingly. We thank you in advanced for understanding and agreeing to the above.

 

Insurance

We have public liability insurance that all children are covered by when attending our camps

 

Mobile Phones and Electronic Devices

We ask that children do not bring the above along to camps with them. Should they do so, these will be locked in our box until the end of the day where they will be returned.

 

Collection Policy

We operate a very strict collection policy. 

Hold ups do of course happen and we are mindful of this, however the following rules apply. All children must be picked up by the time they are booked for e.g. 12.15pm for tots day, 4pm for normal day and 5.30pm for extended day.

4PM COLLECTION If your child is booked in with us until 4pm, please arrive promptly to collect them. Should you be any later than 10 minutes to collect, you will be charged a late pick up fee of £5 for up to  every 15 minutes you are late. You do of course have the option if you know you are going to be late to extend to 5.30pm collection on the day for £6. We can do this for you at our end if you let us know.

 

5.30PM COLLECTION If your child is booked in with us until 5.30pm, please arrive promptly to collect them. Should you be any later than 5.30 to collect, you will be charged a late pick up fee of £20 for up to every 15 minutes you are late. This is to cover the cost of our staff members staying with your child and any additional venue hire costs we incur. For example if you arrive at 5.45pm you would be charged £20, if you are later than this up to it would be £40.

 

Please Note: If you have not colleced your child by 6pm and we canot get hold of you or any emergency contacts you have provided, we will call social services and take their advice.

 

 

We reserve the right to refuse future bookings from parents who continually pick up late or if they fail to make the payment of the charge.
