Health and Safety

EzeeSport believes that the health and safety of children is of paramount importance. We make our EzeeSport classes and clubs a safe and healthy place for children, parents, staff and volunteers. We aim to make children, parents and staff aware of any health and safety issues and to minimise the hazards and risks to enable the children to thrive in a healthy and safe environment. In accordance with the National Standards we comply with all procedures covering Health and Safety.

Injury or Illness at EzeeSport

Parents are contacted as soon as possible if a child becomes ill while attending an EzeeSport class or club. Please make sure EzeeSport has a telephone number where parents can be contacted in an emergency.

Minor injuries are treated at EzeeSport as all our coaches have Paediatric First Aid. Parents are contacted if the injury is more serious. If a child received a bump on the head a close watch is kept for signs of concussion. If symptoms appear, parents are contacted. If no symptoms appear, the child will be given a sticker to wear and parents will be informed by letter when the child is collected. If your child is sick or has diarrhoea whilst at EzeeSport, we will phone you and expect your child to be picked up as soon as possible.

Medical Conditions and Allergies

Parents are asked to inform EzeeSport of any specific medical conditions or allergies from which a child may suffer and which may require particular action or treatment while attending EzeeSport.

Medicines

Whilst it is not our responsibility to administer medicines to children at EzeeSport, we realise that there may be occasions when a child needs to finish a course of antibiotics. We are happy to administer these with a prior written request from parents/carers. All medicines must be clearly labelled and handed to a member of staff by the parent/carer. Paracetamol (including Calpol etc.) will not be given except as an emergency measure in special cases. A member of staff will always try to contact a parent/carer before this is administered. We do not accept children who have any kind of infectious illness and if they have had an upset tummy, it must be 48 hours since their last bout of sickness or diarrhoea before they come back to us. This is in accordance with Government guidelines.

Special arrangements will be made for asthmatic children, those with anaphylaxis conditions and diabetes.
