COST

The cost for Anchor Boys is 1 per boy, per week.

Please note that payment is required for all weeks, since we still need to pay for overheads, such as insurance, heating and lighting etc.

If money is a problem, please let us know as we do not wish for finance to be a block to your son's participation in the BB.  We will keep this confidential .

BEHAVIOUR
It is important that parents and guardians stress the importance of good behaviour on their boys.  In fairness to everyone, it is important that a basic level of respect and discipline is shown.

At the 3rd Yeovil Boys' Brigade, we reward positive behavior mainly by verbally praising instances of good behaviour, particularly when a boy has managed to alter poor behaviour.

In the event of extreme poor behaviour, a boy's parents or guardians may be asked to take them home.

SAFETY
Safety is considered to be a high priority.  The buildings and activities have been checked for safety before the boys participate in them and leaders have a good knowledge of first aid.

Parents and Guardians will fill in consent forms providing details of any special medical requirements and this information will be treated confidentially and with sensitivity.

Child Protection is important and in line with the policies of the Boys' Brigade, The Methodist Church and Preston Road Church, all staff and officers have the relevant safeguarding checks.  The Church's Child Protection guidelines, which we follow may be viewed upon request.
