My child has a serious medical condition or allergy. What should I do to alert the staff?

It is the responsibility of parents/carers to pass on any important information regarding specific treatment, medication or handling of any medical condition.  There is an option on the medical information section to tick if you would like a manager to contact you prior to the booking to discuss your child's needs.  Medication and a detailed care plan must be provided prior to attendance.  If sufficient information or medication is not in place, Shine reserves the right to refuse attendance, for the safety of the child in question.

What is the age range at which children can attend?

The majority of Shine activities are set for children of primary age. The specific age range for each different Shine activity varies can be found on the individual activity pages.  Whilst the standard age range for the activities range between reception to year 9 there maybe occasions when children aged 4 and starting school in September can join our summer holiday club. Shine also offer a range of specialist holiday activities for children from 11+. Details are on the website.   

What are the signing in and out procedures?

By completing an online booking with Shine your child's name will automatically appear on the official register for the activity you have chosen. On arrival Shine staff will register your child's arrival and ensure everything is in order.  The attendance register will be cross checked on regular occasions during longer activity days such as holiday clubs. At the end of each activity a parent/carer is required to sign their child out before they are able to leave. 

If your child is of an appropriate age to leave the premises unsupervised you must inform us in writing. We will NOT allow a child to leave with this consent. 

Please note it is very important that, if you have arranged for your child to be collected by a third party (perhaps a friend or grandparent) you must inform a Shine member of staff on arrival in the morning or by email before the event. It is also important that the person collecting the child is aware of the sign out procedures so please ensure they are fully informed.

Will sporting equipment be provided?

Yes, sports equipment for the sessions are provided by Shine in all its activities. The equipment is checked for quality and safety reasons on a regular basis.  However, please note that personal sports gear and protective kit - such as a cricket box, football boots or shin pads - are not provided.

Do I really need to book my child online or can we just turn up?

For safeguarding reasons we require that all children are booked in using our online booking system.  If you experience difficulty booking in, we ask that parents contact us for support on [email protected]. Children who are not booked in may be not be able to take part due to staff ratios and available spaces.

A late booking (made after 8am for Holiday Clubs or after 10am during term time) may mean we cannot guarantee your choice of activity.  We will do our best to accommodate your child in their preference of available activities.

What clothing and footwear should my child wear?

It is the customers responsibility to ensure that their child is provided with appropriate clothing and footwear for their selected activity. Advice on any specific kit will appear on the activity page during the booking process. It is advised the children arrive fully dressed for their planned activity, such as wellie boots when attending an outdoor adventure session in wet conditions. Children must bring their own shin pads and a protective box when playing football and 'hard ball' cricket respectively. Failure to do may mean they cannot participate in the session.

What happens to the personal information we supply to Shine when making an online booking?

All information provided to us by customers, such as medical information and contact details, are retained for internal company use only. We NEVER pass any information on to third parties or disclose any information to any other person. Customers can edit their marketing preferences by accessing their MyAccount section at anytime.  

All card payment details are sent directly to Shine's online payment merchant Stripe. We never see any of this information. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor, and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available.

Do you accept children on holiday club who will be starting reception in September?

Yes, providing the parents are happy, we are prepared to accept four year olds at our summer holiday club only, providing they are starting school in September. Experience has shown that Shine Holiday Club can be a gentle and positive introduction to 'school life' for pre-schoolers and the arrangement works especially well when there is an older sibling in attendance. We recommend Mini-Sports or Shine Creative as the most suitable activity options.  We reserve the right to ask for them to be collected should they not cope well, but this is rare. To discuss the matter further please email i[email protected] .
