Morning classes 8-8.45am,After school classes typically 3.30-4.30pm*
All of our classes are run by fully BG qualified gymnastics coaches, they are trained in First Aid, hold current DBS, Insurance and Safeguarding Awareness.
All classes are subject to cancellation/change of venue depending on individual school circumstances. Classes maybe cancelled or postponed at short notice due to school commitments, severe weather conditions or staff illness. We will always email you via PaySubsOnline, post on the BSGS Facebook page and NEWS FLASH on our homepage. Please check these before contacting us by email as we cannot reply to everyone in time.
We will always do our best to find cover for staff illness but cancelling classes cannot always be helped. If your child has an illness/injury that means they cannot attend Gym Club we will freeze their membership for 1 term from date of notification.
You are entitled to 1 FREE TRIAL class, then courses are NON REFUNDABLE. We may only refund by way of credit to the following terms invoice for reasons such as staff sickness, lateness in attendance of a coach due to bad traffic or school closures due to commitments only. Please note; In terms of severe weather conditions that are out of our hands, where it makes it impossible to travel to the venue or the school closes due to bad weather you will not be refunded.
Please make sure your child is not late and attends club from the start, it is VITAL they do not miss the warm up as they will have not stretched correctly and be more prone to injury. We also ask that parents do not stay and watch lessons this can be very distracting for the Coach & Gymnasts. There is also no need to come back after morning sessions to dress your children for school, we will help them off to class on time :-)
Should your child injure themselves in club, our Coaches are all First Aid trained and will assess accordingly. If necessary, they will send your child a note to teacher/home in their bag explaining briefly if they do not see you after lesson. In any severe case, you will be notified by the telephone number you provided on PSO immediately so please keep contact details up to date.
6 weeks notice must be given to leave club for the following term so that we can effectively run the waiting lists. ie: 6 weeks before the end of your course. Fees must be paid in ADVANCE of each course and if payments are not made by the deadline we will presume you no longer wish to continue, your space will be handed to the waiting list, but you may still be liable for the terms fees if we have not had notice to leave. Please do not send your children to club if fees are not paid without emailing us first.
If fees are unpaid, your child will not be able to join in and some schools have a no debt policy which they may personally contact you for. Please email us if you have difficulty paying fees on time and we will try our best to accommodate you. We do not want to see any child turned away from clubs.
Our class fees are set with the individual school and can be subject to change. Badges and awards will now be available to purchase online via the PSO at a cost of £4.50 from Summer term 2018 onwards. Any late payments for these may result in your child not receiving their award on time. Please be aware we order awards based on numbers 'paid for' on the deadline date on your slip and do not hold stock.
Uniform is not compulsory but looks smart for the Club Championships, we hold sales throughout the year which will be published online. Children must have appropriate attire to come to class, bare feet (unless verucca when a non slip sock can be worn to the affected foot) PE kit, leotard, leggings, shorts, vest tops are fine. No ballet tutu's, baggy tops or hoodies to be worn please. Hair tied back and no jewellery. Please supply a water bottle that is not for lunch, especially in hot weather.
