I give permission for the child named on this form to take part in the normal activities of this group. I understand that separate permission will be sought for certain activities, including outings lasting longer than the normal meeting times of the group. I understand that while involved he/she will be under the control and care of the group leader and/or other adults approved by the place of worship/organisation leadership and that, while the staff in charge of the group will take all reasonable care of the children, they cannot necessarily be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury suffered by my child during, or as a result of, the activity.
Whenever medical advice or treatment is needed, the assistance of a GP or A&E Department of a hospital should be sought. The Children Act 1989 allows a doctor to provide any necessary treatment by doing ‘what is reasonable in all the circumstances of the case for the purpose of safeguarding or promoting the child’s welfare’.
· My child will receive medication as instructed before or during the event.
· Every effort will be made to contact me as soon as possible should my child become ill or have an accident.
· My child will be given medical/dental treatment as necessary.
