Sickness & Illness

It is vital that your child is well enough to attend BEL, it can put other children and adults at risk if they attend whilst they are ill. In cases of sickness and diarrhoea we ask you to keep your child at home until 48 hours after the last bout. We follow the Health Protection Agency guidelines with regard to exclusion periods for communicable diseases. If your child becomes ill during a session or in the event of an emergency, we will contact you, or if unavailable, your alternative contact immediately.

It is therefore important that we are informed of any changes to your contact details. We are unable to administer medication to your child unless prescribed by a Doctor and a signed form from the parent/carer giving consent has to be completed. All accidents and incidents are recorded and we ask you to countersign entries regarding your child.
