Dear <<FIRST NAME>>
Welcome to the new school year. We hope you had a wonderful holiday.
We want to wish you good luck as you get set to start your Mini Mermaid programme. We’re so grateful that you have chosen to bring our programme into your school and we hope you have a wonderful experience over the next few weeks. The time and energy you offer, amidst all your other commitments, will make a difference in helping these girls be strong, braver and more active.
As it’s been a bit of time since we did the training, we just wanted to make sure you have the link to the Mini Mermaid Digital Toolkit. This provides you with resources and ideas to help you as you activate the programme in your school (you may have already used some of the resources for sign-ups).
The most relevant documents for your first week are the Mini Mermaid Top Tips and the participant pre-programme questionnaire. Also, once you know the size shirts that your squad will need and your start date, please fill out this form and we'll get them sent out to you. Please include the sizes for your coaches as well.

MINI MERMAID TOP TIPS:
This document includes some of the great suggestions and insights we’ve received from coaches over the years. Consider these a guide; we’ve been wowed by the ways in which coaches bring their own personality to our programmes and we hope by providing this foundation, we make it easy for you to build upon it with your style and energy.
PARTICIPANT PRE-PROGRAMME QUESTIONNAIRE:
We ask that you have the girls fill in the pre-programme questionnaire right in the beginning of the first session. We’ve modelled these to measure both the impact of Mini Mermaid Running Club and to provide you with relevant information to include on your school’s OFTSTED/Primary PE and Sport Premium reporting - Key Indicators. We will compile and share the information back for you to use in your final reports.
On the first page of the coach’s handbook, we have a register. If you could keep track of the attendance each week and share with us when requested, we’d appreciate it. We do not need the names of the girls and we completely understand that sometimes there can be attendance challenges and there are reasons why girls may not be able to attend. We are required to report back to our funders on programme attendance, both in terms of individual and overall attendance.
We can’t wait to hear how you get on. As always, let us know if you have any questions.
