KARTING EVENT

  • All learners who complete the course may (see the next three points) be eligible to participate in a karting event at TeamSport.  To comply with TeamSport’s rules and regulations learners must be aged 14 on the day in order to take part in the race laps. Those who are under 14 will be able, instead, to take part in timed lap sessions.
  • Wheels' Supervisors have the discretion to bar a learner from attending the karting session, on the grounds of safety, if that learner's behaviour throughout the course has caused sufficient concern.  The learner will be informed of this decision during the final session at Wheels prior to karting.
  • A learner will be excluded from the karting session if he/she has been absent for more than two sessions.
  • A learner will not be able to attend the karting event if he/she has not returned the signed parent/guardian consent form (given out during the first session at Wheels) by the week before karting at the latest.
  • At least one member of staff from the referral organisation must be present at the karting session and he/she must be sufficiently familiar with the learners to manage effectively any incidents that may occur during the event.
  • One member of staff accompanying a group will be able to take part in the karting, provided there are at least two members of staff present representing that organisation.

GENERAL CONDUCT OF LEARNERS

  • No alcohol or illegal drugs are allowed and anyone suspected of being under the influence will be excluded for that session.
  • Students who repeatedly break the rules agreed in week 1 will be warned by our Supervisors, their referring supervisor notified and may be excluded from the group permanently if that behaviour continues.
  • Violent behaviour will result in immediate removal from the course.
  • Students will be warned against bullying behaviour and will be removed from the course if this behaviour persists.
