    wheelchair sports spectacular 2015 - volunteers required



    Dear Volunteer,

    Wheelchair Sports Spectacular 2015


    Thank you for agreeing to volunteer at this year’s Wheelchair Sports Spectacular. We very much appreciate your support and hope you will enjoy the experience.


    Just to confirm the event takes place at the National Indoor Athletic Centre (NIAC) on the Cyncoed Campus of Cardiff Metropolitan University from:

    10am to 4pm on Friday 11th September and Saturday 12th September.

    We would be grateful if you could arrive by 9.30am on Friday and Saturday to help us ensure the event is set up in time and so we can introduce you to the coaches on the sports you will be helping with.


    We will provide a T-shirt for volunteers and a packed lunch.  There are also vending machines on site and a Café just across the car park should you wish to purchase additional refreshments.  Car parking is available on site at the cost of £2 for the day on Friday and 50p for the day on Saturday. Unfortunately these charges are outside of our control and will still be enforced during the event. When you arrive at the Cardiff Met Campus we would be grateful if you would leave the parking spaces adjacent to the NIAC building free for event participants. Additional parking is available further along by the tennis centre.


    To help us plan the event as efficiently as possible we would be very grateful if you could complete the brief form on the next page and return it to me by email lucy.thomas@disabilitysportwales.com or by post to Disability Sport Wales, Sport Wales National Centre, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff, CF11 9SW.

    **Please return this form by FRIDAY 31ST JULY**

    Thank you again for supporting this event and if you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to ask.


    Kind regards,

    The Education (Penalty Notices) (Wales) Regulations 2013 introduced Fixed Penalty Notices for regular non-attendance at school. 


    The Welsh Government has required all local authorities to draw up and implement their own Local Codes of Conduct to ensure consistency in the issuing of Fixed Penalty Notices. The code will be implemented in Powys from 27th February 2015.


    The Welsh Government states that Fixed Penalty Notices are one option among a number of different interventions available to promote better school attendance. The introduction of these regulations is one part of the Welsh Government strategy to support improved school attendance across Wales.


    The introduction of these regulations mean that parents may now be financially penalised for their child(ren)’s regular non-attendance at school.


    The local code of conduct, which explains how penalty notices will operate, is available on the Powys County Council website

    Mae Rheoliadau Addysg (Hysbysiadau Cosb) (Cymru) 2013 wedi cyflwyno hysbysiadau cosb benodedig am fethu bod yn bresennol yn gyson yn yr ysgol.

    Mae Llywodraethu Cymru’n mynnu bod awdurdodau lleol yn llunio ac yn defnyddio’u Codau Ymddygiad Lleol eu hunain er mwyn bod yn gyson wrth gyflwyno hysbysiadau cosb.  Bydd y cod yn dod i rym ym Mhowys o 27 Chwefror 2015.

    Yn ôl Llywodraeth Cymru, un opsiwn yw  hysbysiadau cosb o blith nifer o wahanol opsiynau  i wella lefelau presenoldeb mewn ysgolion.  Un rhan o strategaeth Llywodraeth Cymru yw’r rheoliadau hyn i wella lefelau presenoldeb mewn ysgolion ar draws Cymru.

    Gyda’r rheoliadau hyn, mae’n bosibl y bydd rhieni’n cael dirwy os yw eu plant yn methu’r ysgol yn gyson.

    Mae’r cod ymddygiad lleol, sy’n esbonio sut bydd yr hysbysiadau cosb yn gweithio, i’w weld ar wefan Cyngor Sir Powys.

    A child should not be accepted at the beginning of a school session if it is obvious that he/she isn’t well and if a child develops symptoms of any infectious illness during a session.  Reasonable steps should be taken to avoid cross-infection.  In order to operate a responsible policy towards preventing the spread of infection, it is recommended that the following guidelines regarding exclusion periods are followed.

    Note that the LEA don’t recommend exclusion for pupils who are infested with headlice.  However, it is school policy to take reasonable steps to avoid cross-infection.  Therefore, when headlice are detected parents should be contacted and pupils sent home for treatment.  They should only return when there is no evidence of live lice on the child.

    Please find below guidance on exclusion periods for communicable diseases.

    Eye Infections

    Please do not send your child to school until the infection has cleared.

    Sickness and Diarrhoea

    Your child must not attend school for 48 hours after the last bout of sickness or diarrhoea.

    Chicken Pox

    Your child must not attend school 6 days from the appearance of the rash or until spots have scabbed over.

    German Measles (Rubella)

    Your child must not attend school for 4 days from the appearance of the rash.


    Your child must not attend the school for 7 days from the appearance of the rash.


    Your child must not attend the school for 10 days or until the swelling has gone down.

    Whooping Cough

    Yourchild must not attend school until both the cough and whooping have ceased for 14 days.

    Skin Infection eg. Impetigo

    Medical advice needs to be sought and treatment given.  Where practical, the infection needs to be covered to avoid infection through contact.

    Slapped Cheek (Fifth) Disease

    • This is a viral illness that usually affects children, but can also affect adults.
    • Symptoms include fever, rash (the cheeks often have a bright red “slapped cheek” (appearance) and sometimes joint pains.
    • Transmission is from person to person by respiratory droplets.
    • The incubation period is usually between 13-18 days.
    • The infectious period is from 7 days before the onset of the rash.  Once the rash appears, a person is  no longer infectious.
    • Children who are immunocompromised or have certain types of anaemias can have more severe symptoms.
    • Occasionally Parvovirus can affect an unborn baby.  If a woman is exposed early in pregnancy (before 20 weeks) she should inform her GP and whoever is providing her antenatal care.
