Attendance & Collection

In order to ensure a prompt start, students are required to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of each lesson. 

 

Students arriving late will be kept in a holding area until an appropriate time for them to enter is available. 


·On arrival children MUST register for each class attending, contact numbers must be recorded  along with the name of the responsible adult for collection (this must be the NAME and not Mum or Dad)  

· Before leaving each child must be signed out by the class teacher. No  child is to leave the lesson without being collected or signed out.


· Should the authorised adult not be available for collection you must  provide me with a password for your child in order for me to release them.

 

. Should you wish your child to be released from class without a  responsible adult collecting them I must have a disclaimer in writing to  this effect, this will be held on your child’s file. 


· Parents will  only be permitted into a class for 10 minutes maximum on a child’s first  day, this is to ensure all students can focus and not be distracted. If arriving at the start and end of classes parents must wait in the  designated areas (you will be notified of this area upon registration).  

All  Sorts of Performing Arts will ensure all children are aware of the fire  evacuation procedure and will hold regular fire drills. 


· Due to the  increased number of students I may not be personally available to speak  to you at the start or beginning of each class. Should you have any  queries or questions please initially register these with a front desk volunteer. 


Should they not be able to help at the time I will be advised and will contact you at a convenient time for myself Policies Details of all our policies (Customer Care, Equal Opportunities, First Aid, Child Protection, Anti Bullying, Health & Safety and Audition) are available by visiting our website www.allsortsofpa.co.uk
