We will collect your contact details, plus some basic details about each child attending. You can register more than one child when booking - but please note, you have to be in a position to give consent for each child to attend.

All advance communications will be sent to each attendee's parent/care giver (please only include your email address when filling in the registration form) - we will never contact your child directly.

We take every attendee's safety seriously - and we have safeguarding policies in place that can be accessed from the Rise website.
