As a parent of a child taking part in our dance school, we’d like you to:
Make sure you child has the correct uniform for the class as well as enough food and drink if needed.
Try to make sure your child arrives to sessions on time and is picked up promptly; or let us know if you’re running late or if your child is going home with someone else
Complete all consent, contact and medical forms and update us straight away if anything changes
Talk to us if you have any concerns about any part of your child’s dance training – we want to hear from you
Try and learn about the class your child takes, what it means to them and what they want to achieve in that class.
Remember that children get a wide range of benefits from dance class, like making friends, getting exercise, boosting confidence, working as a team whilst improving as an individual. It's not all about getting the highest exam mark or winning at the competition.
Behave positively - let your child know you’re proud of what they’re doing.
Think about the way you react and behave – it effects not just your child, but other children too.
Lead by example with positive behaviour in the waiting area; let other parents take their cues from you
Accept the teachers' judgement about your child’s ability to take an exam / do a competition
Use social media responsibly when talking about what goes on at our school, by behaving the same way online as you would in person
Talk to your child about embracing good etiquette and sportsmanship
Encourage your child to follow the rules of the dance school
As a parent, we understand you have the right to:
Be assured that your child is safeguarded during their time with us
See any of our policies and procedures at any time
Know what training and qualifications our staff have
Be informed of problems or concerns relating to your child
Know what happens if there’s an accident or injury, be informed if your child is injured and see records of any accidents
Have any concerns about any aspect of your child’s welfare listened to and responded to We expect all parents to follows the behaviours and requests set out in this code.
If any parent behaves in such a way which contradicts any of the points set out above, we’ll address the problem straight away with the parent and aim to resolve the issue. Persistent concerns or breaches may result in the parent being asked not to stay in the waiting area during class if their attendance is considered a risk to the welfare and enjoyment of young participants. Continued issues and repeated breaches of this code may result in us regrettably asking your child to leave the dance school – something we never want to do.
