It builds on the work of many governing bodies of sport and other coach employing/ deploying organisations who already issue specific advice on minimum coach-to-participant supervision ratios (and a range of other factors linked to the welfare and safety of participants).
It is hoped that the document will:
enhance existing practice

Affordable Bus Hire For Our Local Sports Clubs
BUDGETS UNDER PRESSURE ? Sport Kingston is Grant aided by the Royal Borough of Kingston
We’ve had lots of recent interest from schools for them to use our SEN Home to School buses (on school days, this is generally 10am – 2pm), at far lower cost than obtaining buses through private hire companies. One Primary School has told us that we’ve saved them a huge amount on their transport budget to regular swimming lessons !
We have 17 vehicles available, 16 of which carry 16 passengers (excluding the driver), and 1 of which carries 28 passengers (again, excluding driver). All the vehicles are fully wheelchair accessible and all the drivers are trained to very high standards, as they all work on our regular Special Educational Needs Home to School routes.

GB Karina Bryant and GB Moe Sbihi
Winners of Kingston Borough Sport Awards
Khalsa Champions members - Satinda Sehra (Eileen Gray Award), Sophie Santillo (Sports Achiever Junior), Max Dudzinski (Sports Volunteer Junior) and Fran Hardcastle(National Athlete Junior)
In a year when the borough of Kingston finished 18th out of 33 in the London Youth Games, the awards recognised not only the sporting achievements of the young athletes, but also that of the coaches and volunteers at local community clubs and national athletes of the borough.
Karina Bryant, a former pupil at Tolworth Girls' School pupil, won bronze at the London 2012, and the 33-year old told the award winners that she was living proof that they too could become Olympic medal winners.
Among the highlights of the evening were Ciaran Sibley winning the Neil Desai award for sports personality of the London Youth Games for cycling and kayak slalom and Peter Roberts for sports personality of the disabled games. Sophie Santillo won Sports Achiever Junior of the year and Kieran Bahan the senior award.
The last three trophies of the evening were saved for Adele Orr (Kingston Fencing Club), Satinda Sehra (Khalsa Champions) and Peter Corner (Graham Spicer Institute Table Tennis) winning the respective awards - The Mayor's Trophy, The Eileen Gray Award and the John Mowat Award.
To get a flavour for why the above and many more won their awards please read the snapshot citations.
