Photographs and Videos
Subject to the Parent / Carer's permission being given on the
'Membership Application' form the following guidelines when publishing
images, still or video, will be adhered to: -
- Publication will only be on one or more of the
Group's internally controlled publications and communication channels
such as online news, social media, email, websites, newsletters, Group
advertising or promotional material. These Images may be recorded at
the Group's meeting place or at a Group off-site activity.
- We will never publish the personal details of
any young person or Parent / Carer with any Image that is used (e.g.
full name, address, email address, phone number etc.).
- We will endeavour to remove identifying metadata from Images (e.g. location or comments etc.).
- The content of all images will be considered to be in good taste before publication.
- The Group will never give permission for any
Image to be published on any media other than the Group's internally
- The Group will never provide any person or
organisation outside the Group with any personal information about any
Images that we have.
- If a Parent / Carer is not happy with any Image that we have
published, or if any Image has inadvertently been published without the
Parent / Carers permission, and it is brought to the attention of any
of the Regular Volunteers, the relevant Image will be removed from the publication
in question as soon as possible.
The Group cannot be held responsible for any images recorded by other parties.
You are legally entitled to see whatever data or Images that we have on your
child and we will happily provide it to you if asked. However, the only
data that we store is what you entered on the Membership Application
Form and a record of your child’s subscriptions and any other donations
/ sponsorship money that you have made.
Waiting List Policy
Regular Volunteers will regularly review the number of young people that they have
in their Section, when members are due to move on to the next age group
Section and if they can accommodate any additional members If places
are identified they will be offered as below.
Priorities when offering places
Priority in offering places in each Section will be given in the following order: -
Once a decision to offer a place
has been made the appropriate Section Regular Volunteer will make every effort to
contact the Parent / Carer using the email address and telephone
numbers provided on the Membership Application form that they
submitted. If the Section Regular Volunteer is unable to get a response the young
person's name will be removed from the Waiting List.
- Existing members of the Scout Association who are moving into the area (see Transfers from another Scout Group below).
- Young people of existing Regular Group Adult Volunteers.
- Siblings of existing young members of the Group – assuming that they are on our Waiting List.
- Thereafter, from the Waiting
List - the young person who has been on the Waiting List the longest
and is within the required age group will be offered the place. This is
subject to Important Note 4 below.
If a place has been offered and accepted then the young person fails to
attend the first 2 meetings and no contact has been made by the Parents
/ Carers, the Section Regular Volunteer will attempt to contact the Parents /
Carer again and advise them that if the young person does not attend
within the the next 2 weeks the offer of a place will be withdrawn and
the young person's name will be removed from the Waiting List.
Transfers from another Scout Group
These will only be accepted if the family is moving to the Mickleover
area and it would be unreasonable for the Group to expect the Parents /
Carers to transport the young person to their old Group each week.
- Membership is not possible
for anyone who has not had a Membership form submitted for them via the
Group’s website - 'ContactUs' page, Membership Application.
- There is a limit to the
number of young people that can be accommodated in each Section based
upon a few criteria, most importantly the ratio of Regular Volunteers to young
people in each Section.
- There is a limited amount of
flexibility on the age of a young person’s membership of a Section.
This is based upon a number of factors and should be discussed with
either the relevant Section Regular Volunteer or the Group Regular Volunteer.
- The young person must be of
an age where they will be able to spend at least 12 months in that
Section to enable them to get the benefits of membership of that
Section. The 12 months may be reduced at the discretion of the Regular Volunteer
and after discussions with the Parents / Carers. If they fail this
criterion they will be left on the Waiting List and offered a place in
the next age group Section when one becomes available.
- Scouting is open to all
young people (irrespective of gender, faith, ability, sexuality, school
or any other factors). If a young person needs additional support in
order to participate in Scouting, this should be discussed with the
Group Regular Volunteer or Section Regular Volunteer who will work with Parents /
Carers to establish a plan of action. These special needs must have
been detailed on the Membership Application form when originally
- The Group Regular Volunteer’s decision is final.
- This policy is in line with The Scout Association’s rules on Admission to Membership.
