Code of Conduct for Coastal Ballet School

For all students, parents and guardians at the Coastal Ballet School.
Expectations in respect of pupils admitted to the Coastal Ballet School.

The aim of the Coastal Ballet School is to ensure that all students experience dance in a fun, friendly, positive and safe environment. In order to achieve this, please take note of the following guidelines. We would like to stress that these points are of great importance in assuring the wellbeing of all students in the School.

Any student unable or unwilling to profit from the education provided at the school may be asked to withdraw from the school after reasonable notice.

Registration

For insurance and safety purposes all students must be registered in advance of attending classes. Coastal Ballet School can only accept responsibility for enrolled students during class time.

Punctuality

It is vital that students arrive in good time for their classes. If students are late for class they may miss vital information and will impede the learning of others and place themselves at risk of injury should they miss the warm up section of the class.

Attendance

Regular attendance is extremely important. If students do not attend on a regular basis then the development of the class and the individual student will be affected. Exam students’ attendance will be monitored as they prepare for their examinations and assessments and students who fail to attend classes and additional lessons may be withdrawn. We regret that it is not possible to make up missed classes by attending another class for which you are not registered.

Discipline

Students are expected to behave in an orderly, civilised and well-mannered way and to show respect to their teacher when attending Coastal Ballet School. Students should also show respect to other students in their class. Failure to comply with the rules and regulations may result in withdrawal from the Coastal Ballet School.

Uniform

It is extremely important that students come to classes dressed in full uniform in order to be able to work correctly and safely in class and present a neat and elegant appearance. We ask that all students make a concerted effort to come to class wearing a bun or headband for shorter hair.

Examinations

Entries for RAD examinations are at the discretion of the Coastal Ballet School.

Changing

Students should only get changed in the designated changing area in the presence of other students and/or teachers, but never alone with one adult.

Drop Off/Collection

Parents/guardians are asked to drop off students directly before the start of their class. Students must be collected promptly at the end of class.

Personal Property

Students should make sure that they keep their valuable personal items with them at all times. Coastal Ballet School regrets that we cannot be held responsible if items go missing.

Remuneration and Fees

As per the Terms and Conditions; fees must be paid before the student’s first class of each term. Failure to do so and non payment of fees in a timely manner may result in withdrawal from Dance School classes.

Data Protection Policy

Coastal Ballet School staff members are not at liberty to enter into conversation with or disclose any information to parents relating to other students. Student’s information is confidential and retained by the Academy in accordance with the Coastal Ballet School Data Protection Policy.

Visual and Social Media

Coastal Ballet School does not publish or post any images (static or moving) of children under the age of 18, across any of its online channels without prior written consent, and publishes minimal personal information alongside images.
