TERMS AND CONDITIONS
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING FOR THE SMOOTH AND EFFECTIVE RUNNING OF THE SESSIONS FOR THE CHILDREN

General
• When an application form is signed, the parents/guardians agree to abide by the regulations
• Please notify us of absence.
• Please be punctual.
• Good attendance is essential if a child is to make good progress, also once we are working on a project it causes problems if one member is missing.
• It is essential to inform the teacher as to who will be collecting your child from the club or if they have permission to go home unaccompanied – we do not let a child leave without knowing who they are with. To release a child to go home alone, we must receive written permission from the parents/guardians.
• Children must bring a pencil and their scripts to all rehearsals when applicable.
• The classes are facilitated by professional theatre practitioners. On occasions, such as illness, professional engagements, maternity leave etc., substitutions are unavoidable and appropriate replacement actor/teachers are provided.
• Please read and note the contents of any literature sent home (usually by email) as this is the most effective way to communicate with parents/guardians.

Clothing
Please ensure the children wear loose fitting clothes suitable for movement and dancing. For health and safety reasons we ask for jazz shoes or bare feet for the dance class.


Finance
All deposits and fees are non-refundable and must be paid in advance. Alternative payment scales must be discussed and agreed in advance and subsequent payments must not fall into arrears. Families eligible for the discounts or free places on the grounds of low income or DLA MUST provide evidence to that effect.
