Activities Consent Form
The education of your child will benefit greatly if they can participate in the wide range of activities we organise. The range of events includes many sporting activities, for example – games lessons at Cromer’s Corner, sports fixtures at local schools and skiing at Chatham. It also includes Geography field work, visits to places of historical interest and many more. We require your consent for local visits for your child whilst they are in Years 12 and 13.
Such visits would be either on foot, by staff car, minibus, coach or train and would have the requisite regulation staff supervision and insurance cover. On those occasions when visits involve any kind of cost and voluntary contribution you will receive a letter with details and a simple reply slip as usual.
Although the school will make every effort to inform you when your child is involved in such activities, often by email, letter or through the use of the student planner, it is believed that the request for a separate signed parental consent form on each occasion is unnecessary. It should be emphasised that separate consent forms will still be required for longer trips and for residential visits. A student will not be allowed to attend an off-site activity unless the school has express parental permission authorising this.
Consent for School Activities
I consent to my child taking part in out of school supervised visits and sporting activities which take place in the local area, in and around Sittingbourne, other areas of Swale, the Medway Towns, Dartford, Maidstone, Canterbury and Ashford. I have ensured that my child understands that it is important for their safety and for the safety of the group that any rules and any instructions given by the staff in charge are followed.
I understand that, while the school staff and helpers in charge of the party will take all reasonable care of students, unless they are negligent they cannot be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury suffered by my child during the visits/activities.
I consent to my child having their personal information, including photographic images, being published in/on any of the following:
Please note that where a box is not ticked, we will assume you do not consent to this.
I agree to pay for any damages which may be occasioned solely through the misconduct or carelessness of my child to the person or property of any other parties, on the understanding that such agreement should not be interpreted as in any way precluding possible access to insurance claims or other means of redress should such access be deemed more appropriate.
