The Hirer must be aged 18 years or over and shall be the person responsible for the booking. The Hirer shall be responsible for the payment of all fees and charges in respect of the hiring, including any charges for damage caused by the Hirer or any member of his group whilst on site and for the observance and performance in all respects of the conditions and stipulations contained herein. Such responsibility remains even where the Hirer is unable to attend site for all or part of his booking(s). Where the Hirer is absent during all or part of his booking(s) he must nominate a deputy who shall make himself known to the Extended Use staff on site. The deputy will be required to complete a site induction, pass on any relevant safety information/rules to the group and take responsibility for the actions and behaviour of the group during the booking(s). However, the absence of the Hirer and nomination of a deputy(s) does not relieve the Hirer of any of his responsibilities under these Terms and Conditions.
St Luke's Science and Sports College will provide the Hirer with a site induction containing information necessary to ensure his health and safety and that of his group. The Hirer should take careful note of the information provided and follow any instructions given. As the named organiser, responsibility lies with the Hirer to ensure that he and his entire group comply with all health and safety instructions and obey all site rules. The Hirer is responsible for communicating to his group all health and safety instructions/guidance/information given to him by Carillion, including the instructions contained within the site induction, site rules and these terms and conditions. In particular, he must ensure that his group are aware of the location of emergency exits and the emergency evacuation assembly point. A Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) must be provided by the Hirer, prior to any use of the facilities, for any mobility impaired member of his group who is likely to experience difficulty or require assistance in the event of an emergency evacuation (e.g. wheelchair users). St Luke's Science and Sports College are able to supply blank PEEPs and will, on request, provide advice on their completion. Any decision to withdraw/amend facilities for health and safety reasons will be made by St Luke's Science and Sports College and will be final.
No use of the facilities may be made without prior agreement from St Luke's Science and Sports College. The Hirer may only use the facilities for the purpose that has been declared and agreed. The Hirer must satisfy himself that the facilities are suitable for the declared use. The Hirer will, prior to any use of the facilities, provide St Luke's Science and Sports College with a completed risk assessment and proof of valid public liability insurance covering the declared activity. Payment in full is required prior to any use of the facilities. St Luke's Science and Sports College reserves the right to decline any booking without giving a reason.
All use of facilities must take place at the agreed date(s)/time(s). Groups should not enter the school grounds until 15 minutes prior to their booked start time. No use of the facilities may be made until the booked start time. A 30 minute allowance for use of the showers and changing facilities is permitted immediately after the booking. All users must fully vacate the school grounds within 20 minutes of the end of their booking, unless they are utilising the catering facilities available. Failure to vacate the facilities/grounds within this time may lead to additional charges being incurred.
Use of the external facilities is dependant on there being sufficient lighting available. Bookings made for sections of the astro turf pitch can be made but Hirers should be aware that they should not use any additional space that is free at this time and indeed that other users may book the adjacent sections during that time period. This may result in different sports/activities taking place on the pitch at any one time subject to health and safety.
