Unaccompanied Young People

Children

Young people under the age of 18 can attend the School without a parent. However, we require an adult attending the School on the days when the young person is attending to act as his/her guardian. This guardian will take first responsibility for the young person’s safety, behaviour and adherence to the Code of Conduct. The guardian must be present at the School at the same times as the young person.

Everyone under the age of 18 must be registered as part of a group.

The group leader will assume responsibility for all registered in this group or party.

All children ages 4 – 17 must have a completed and signed Parental Consent Form.

Kindly download, complete, sign and bring with you to the event (do not post or email).

You can download the forms in PDF format via this link

If you find this unclear, please contact the event Registrar.

These guidelines come from the National Spiritual Assembly and its Office for Safeguarding Children. If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar.
