Sporting Events - Spectator Code
Dear parents /carers
Ashgate Primary School provides opportunities for children of all ages, experience and capabilities to take part in a wide range of sporting activities both in and beyond the curriculum remit.
We do open some events to support from parents and we welcome encouragement and celebration on such occasions. It can be a moment of immense pride for children to have families and friends attend an event and recognise their participation.
Sadly, some parents and visitors find the balance between support and critique challenging; likewise there are a minority of parents who fail to understand that the volunteers and staff running such events should be respected.
These events are not the Olympics or professional sporting events, they are designed to encourage engagement, model good sporting conduct and instil pride and achievement in those taking part. The event is for children, it is not for you.
Any parent failing to successfully meet our Spectator Code, will be removed from the event and possibly banned from future participation.
All forms of discrimination are unacceptable. No one should be discriminated against due to their gender, sexuality, ability, cultural background or religion.
