Creating an environment of mutual respect, whilst having fun, is at the very heart of everything that we at Dig it Kids Ltd do. We believe that every child has an equal right to have a fantastic time with us and for that reason always keep a close eye on any teasing or bullying or other anti-social behaviour that may affect another participant’s experience with us. Fortunately instances of such behaviour are rare; however please do tell your children that if this does happen then they should quietly inform their group leader or any other member of staff immediately. If they tell you during their stay of any experiences such as this, then please check whether we have been advised and if not, please tell us as soon as possible. We will take immediate steps to rectify this. We have firm rules in place and will act in regard to any child who is wilfully spoiling another participant’s time at camp.
The camp charter, which will be clearly explained to all participants, will include:
- Do as you are asked by Archaeology camp leaders
- Raise your hand when you want to speak
- Listen when someone is talking
- Be kind and polite to each other
- Respect others
- Participate in all learning activities
- Respect other people’s belongings
- Take care of all your belongings and materials
- Keep the club meeting room clean and tidy
The charter will be visible to all in the camp and referred to frequently and at the beginning of each day. The rules are devised with regard for health, safety and welfare of all the members of the camp community. Camp leaders want to praise and reinforce positive behaviour. Rule infractions will be handled in a firm, and consistent manner, with due regard to the age of the participant and their individual differences and in accordance with Dig it Kids Ltd terms and conditions.
The aims of this policy are:
- To create a positive environment that encourages and reinforces good behaviour
- To enable all children to feel welcome and included
