GSSN are proud to offer schools the opportunity to take part in our second Scoot Festival at Castle Hill Primary School.

The aim of the Festival is to provide children with the opportunity to participate in a non-main stream sport in a controlled, fun environment.

The Teams
The Festival is initially limited to a total of ten schools.
Teams will consist of 6 children taken from Year 4 and 5.

The Festival Format
There will be 10 different stations for the children to enjoy. Each station aims to challenge the children’s balance, coordination, technique and agility on a scooter.
The stations will be manned by Castle Hill Year 6 Sport Leaders with GSSN staff.
The children must be accompanied by a member of staff from school.

Equipment Required
Children MUST bring their own scooters to the Festival.
Parents/Guardians are responsible for ensuring their child’s scooters are in good working order and are safe to use for the day. (There will be no onsite mechanic to repair scooters)
Children MUST provide and wear a helmet at all times while scooting. It is also advisable for the children to bring elbow, knee and wrist pads.
Children are advised to wear non uniform, such as a jumper, long trousers and trainers and to bring a drink.

Safety Considerations
Using a scooter carries an element of unavoidable risk. The activities are designed to be safe with an element of challenge.
Although supervised the children taking part may injure themselves. It is advisable that schools outline this element of risk in the letters they send out to parents.

The GSSN and Castle Hill Primary School will endeavour to provide a safe, secure environment for the children, but cannot guarantee a child may not injure themselves as a result of riding their scooter. Therefore GSSN and Castle Hill Primary cannot be accountable/responsible for any injury. As always, please bring your own first aid kit.

All schools entering the Festival agree to these terms.

Any Schools that wish to take part please reply to this email with the name of the  person in charge of this event at your school and their email address .
