Participant Registration Form for BGO Action'21

  • *Please fill this in if your Facebook Profile name is different to your name above (parent unless child is 13+) as a new facebook group will be set up for this event so we can post links and videos and instructions and you can post things that your child has done over the weekend.
  • Consent Form

  • The event takes place between May 8th and June 20th

    The online platforms we will be using are zoom for live events and also Facebook and Youtube. Go to Meeting may also be used for some live events.

    They will take place during the event but live events will primarily take place on opening and closing weekends.

    Times will be throughout the day

  • In order to make sure that your child stays safe online, we ask that you do the following:

    • Access to the platform is made through the parent/carers account, unless your child meets the age restrictions for the platform.
    • An appropriate adult, like a parent or carer will remain in the room with young members (Rainbows & Brownies) during video or conference calls to help or join in. For older girls (Guides & Rangers) please make sure there’s an appropriate adult nearby so that they can ask for help if they need it.
    • Please will you ‘drop off’ your child at the meeting like you would at a unit meeting, so we know that they have an appropriate adult nearby if they need a hand. This will also give us a chance to talk with you if we need to.
    • Your young member must take part in the video call in a suitable communal environment (not a bedroom) and be appropriately dressed (uniform isn’t necessary, but they should be fully dressed in clothing that covers top and bottom half of the body). All members of the household must be aware that the call is taking place and make sure they use appropriate language and behaviour when nearby or in the background. Some of the video calling software has a built-in option to ‘blur’ the background - you may feel this is an appropriate feature to turn on.
    • You will make sure your young member has ‘logged off’ the call correctly and signed out before turning off any devices.
    • You and your young member will not try to contact any leaders using these online tools outside of the pre-arranged calls. If you need to contact a leader for any reason you will do so following your normal contact procedures (ie emailing).

    In order to protect your child, we will:

    • Have a minimum of two adult volunteers present throughout the video call who will stay on the call until all girls have ‘logged off’.
    • At least one adult volunteer involved in the call will hold their leadership qualification (or be working towards their leadership qualification) Both adult volunteers will hold the Girlguiding safeguarding training A Safe Space Level 3.
    • No leader will contact you outside of any pre-arranged meetings using these online tools and if they do need to contact you will do so following their normal contact procedures (ie emailing)
    • Leaders will watch through and check any links or videos they may direct your young member to. They will make sure everything they use is age-appropriate.
    • Leaders and other adults on the call will use appropriate language/ behaviour throughout the call.
    • All leaders will ensure they are in a communal living space throughout the call. Where possible they will blur the background in any video calls and any members of their household will use appropriate language/behaviour throughout the call.

  • In signing this you are confirming that (please tick all that apply):

  • If you have another non-member child who would also like to join in with the video calls, let us know below. Please bear in mind that content will be age appropriate and directed at the child that belongs to the unit.
  • Any questions or comments?
