Notice to leave

It is the parents’ responsibility to collect their child immediately after their class has finished.
Any lessons missed by pupils are not refundable (prior arrangements may be made for exceptional cases, such as serious illness). Every effort will be made to make up lessons missed due to class cancellations or the Teacher’s absence.
Parent Watching Day
In order to avoid distractions, parents are only permitted to watch their child’s first lesson on joining and then the last lesson of every term. In the case of the very young students e.g. Tiny Tots / Pre-School, if your child feels insecure, please feel free to stay with them for the first lesson to settle them in.
