Staying Covid Safe:

If you child is unwell, please do not allow them to attend Scouts. Please follow the current guidelines available on the NHS website.
We will have a leader on the main door, who will control the number of children either entering or leaving the school.
Due to the school reception area being a small space, parents will not be permitted to enter the school, (unless you have an agreed meeting with your child’s section leader).

We will have hand gel and equipment wipes available during the meetings. Weather permitting, some activities will take place outside on the school yard. Any leader requiring to administer first aid, will be required to wear PPE as they will come in to close contact with the person requiring treatment.

Uniform:
Once your child has settled in to their section, usually after the first 4 weeks, we would expect you to purchase uniform. These can be purchased from the Maghull Scout shop by phoning Sue on 07710 421065.

Member Insurance (known as Capitation) is payable on an annual basis. Last year the cost was £50.00 per person.
We ask for a parent contribution of £15.00 per child and we will undertake fundraising initiatives to cover the remaining cost.
Please never let financial issues prevent your child from missing out of their scouting experiences. Speak with your section leader in confidence.
