Clarification of position for all-day courses for 6 and 7 year olds

We have had several enquiries regarding acceptance of children aged 6 and 7 onto our all-day courses.

The position is as follows: we are bound by Ofsted rules. In particular we cannot accept children under 5 for more than four hours per day

Acceptance of children aged between 5 and 8 on all-day courses is at the discretion of the coaches. The safety of the kids is always our main priority.
We will normally accept 7 year olds on full-day courses, but it is subject to them being sufficiently robust and attentive not to present a hazard to.themselves or to other members of the group. We would take the same view with a 6 year old, but obviously the chance of us having to press the “recall button” would be higher – hence we do not advertise the all-day courses for this age group. This might depend on external factors, such as how many in the age group we had for a particular course, or even the external weather conditions.
So do register 6 and 7 year-olds for all-day courses, but be aware that there is a chance that we may have to cancel the booking, or only accept the child for the morning session.,You should be prepared to make alternative arrangements at short notice should things not work out as you and we hope.

No children aged 5 or under are permitted to attend for more than four hours per day.
