All animals have potential health and safety risks, when keeping an animal as a pet at Clubland we ensure that the animals are free of disease and are vaccinated as they should be.
The supervisor at each site will have the local vet’s number if applicable.
If an animal that is kept as a pet at Clubland becomes unwell then they will be taken back to the supervisor’s house. The children will help the member of staff to clean the animal following health and safety procedures weekly and will help with feeding the animal daily. The animal’s food and water will be prepared away from where the children’s food is prepared.
The children will be supervised at all times when handling animals and parents will be told if animals are going to be onsite so the staff can be made aware of children’s additional needs when coming into contact with animals.
