DROPPING OFF AND PICKING UP YOUR CHILD
With the winter nights now drawing in, we want to ensure the safety of all our pupils leaving and arriving at the studio. Please read the following carefully:
Even though it is convenient to pull up outside, when it is dark please ensure you escort any children you are responsible for, to and from the studio NO CHILDREN WILL BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE RECEPTION UNTIL ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN.
If your child is going home with someone else please let us know. We have provide the relevant contact details for our receptionists below for the days you attend ballet.
A lot of children appear to leave the studio alone. If your child is under 13 please let us know if you are allowing your child to leave the studio unaccompanied. Please give your WRITTEN consent to Miss Sarah.
After your child has finished her class we are no longer responsible for their welfare. We will do our best however to ensure their safety but need pupils to be picked up from class on time, as we do not want children waiting outside in the dark.
