Dear Parent

There are two orienteering events scheduled for this term. The dates are:

Wednesday, 24th September at Stewart Park, Middlesbrough (TS7 8AR)

Wednesday, 22nd October at Preston Park, Stockton on Tees (TS18 3RH).

If your child would like to take part in the September you will need to pick up your child at 3.45pm from school, (or give permission for your child to travel by coach). You, or another designated adult will need to collect your child from the venue, just after 5pm or collect them when they to return to school at 5.30pm.

The children will be given some instruction by me, before the date, and by one or two of the organisers at the start, on the day. The children need tracksuits and sensible shoes (raincoat if it is wet).

The children will be in pairs and they will take it in turns to use a map and an electronic emit card. The area is patrolled by the organisers, so it is quite safe. I will be jogging around the course to check on them and assist them if required.

Please could you fill in the consent form to give permission for your child to participate. This activity will be subject to the conditions of the annual consent form, and will be covered by the schools insurance policy. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leader. A qualified first aider will be available at both events.

The second event, at Preston Park falls in the October half term holiday. Pupils will still be able to attend but there will be no staff from Red House available as myself and Mr Heaton are with the Key Stage 2 trip in London.

Thank you for your attention in this matter and to all parents for helping out with lifts and supporting the Orienteering over the last couple of years.

Yours faithfully

Mr C Jones
