We will support and encourage children to make positive choices. Children who behave appropriately will be positively rewarded with praise.


Be assured that we will do our best to make Playscheme an enjoyable time for your child. In order to provide your child with this opportunity, it is important that these rules are followed at all times;


- Respect others and be kind

- Violence will not be tolerated

- Do not leave the group without asking a leader

- If a leader puts their hand up, stop and listen

- Tell a leader if you see something that isn’t right


To ensure that all participants consider the impact of their behaviour on the safety, wellbeing and enjoyment of others attending Playscheme, we follow a warning system. 1st incident verbal warning 2nd incident 2nd verbal warning and the child will be told we will inform parents/carers. If the unwanted behaviour continues 3rd incident 3rd verbal warning and a call to parents/carers to inform them that their child is on their 3rd warning 4th incident parents/carers will be called and asked to come and collect their child from Playscheme. (Dangerous or destructive behaviour will result in the parents/carers being called immediately. We reserve the right to exclude a child if we deem there has been no significant change of behaviour over a period of time or we consider the issue to be serious).



If your child needs to take medication whilst in our care, you should have filled in a ‘Instruction of Administration of Medicine’ form at the time of booking. To ask for this form please email All medication must be given to the Playscheme Leader at entrance. Children are not permitted to carry medication in their possession. If your child is feeling unwell, they should not attend until they are feeling better and symptom free.


If your child has vomited or has had diarrhea they must not attend Playscheme for 2 days after their symptoms have gone. Refunds will not be given, but alternative Playscheme dates will be offered.



At the Youth Commission we have a fundamental responsibility to ensure that in every aspect of our work, children are protected and kept safe from harm. If we are concerned about your child’s safety we will ask you to come in for a meeting to look at next steps, in accordance with our Safeguarding Policy.
