THE SCOUT TROOPS
A Scout Troop is for young people aged from 101/2– 14 yrs.
The 2 Scout Troops at Rolleston meet on a Wednesday 19.15 – 21.00 and on a Friday 19.30 – 21.30.
Scouts meet together as a Troop and work within a variety of small groups called ‘Patrols’. Each patrol has a Patrol Leader and an Assistant Patrol Leader. These 2 scouts are responsible for ensuring that their patrol works effectively looks after their equipment. Patrol Leaders and Assistant Patrol Leaders will change as the scouts get older and move to Explorers, giving other members of the patrol the opportunity to be ‘promoted.
The Patrol Leaders work with the Leadership Team in setting the programme and in decisions affecting the Troop. The Patrol system is one of the important ways that young people can take responsibility for themselves and others, as well as learning valuable leadership skills.
A volunteer leadership team made up of uniformed Leaders and other informal Assistants and helpers will guide the Troop!
Scouting has a reputation as an outdoor organisation based on strong traditions of camping and other outdoor pursuits.
Rolleston Scout Group usually offer the Scout Troops a Winter camp and a Summer camp, as well as the Group camp each year as a way of allowing the scouts to put into practice what they have learned and often complete badge work.
In addition to this, every 2 years the Summer camp is replaced with an International camp. Scouts are given the opportunity to fundraise to cover the cost for this camp; and gives them some fantastic experiences that they can remember for the rest of their lives. In order to attend an International camp, Scouts must be 101/2 and have camped with the troop at least once before hand.

Rolleston Scout Group Behaviour Policy
PLEASE NOTE Rolleston Scout Groupwill not tolerate persistent bad behaviour or bullying in any form. It is a fundamental part of the Association that we protect children in our care from physical, emotional and sexual harm and this is what we endeavour to achieve.
We have a waiting list in all Sections with children waiting to join, so neither I nor any of my Leaders will have children in the Group that are disruptive.
The Group has a ‘three strike’ rule. In any instance of bad behaviour or bullying the following procedure applies:
- Verbal warning to child (in front of another Leader) and a meeting with the Section Leader and parents to discuss the matter.
- Written warning together with a meeting between the Group Scout Leader, Section Leader and parents followed by a three week ban on attending meetings, activities and camps that might be inside that three week period. Refunds will not be given for events missed due to exclusion
- If lack of compliance persists, your child will be excluded from the Group by Group Scout Leader.
If the behaviour is deemed to be of a praticularly serious nature, this includes bullying, stages 1 and 2 of the behaviour procedure will not be applied. In such circumstances a child will be excluded from the Group without notice. This will only be done by the Group Scout Leader.
