Other information can be found on the website ( and they explain the rules and what you’re agreeing to when signing a child up to our classes. For example, it is expected that parents offer to help in some way during the week of the shows. Please book some time off during show week. A sign-up form will be sent out nearer the time. Please expect to chaperone at a performance your child is NOT in. In most cases you will need to have a current enhanced DBS certIficate (ie issued within the last 3 years or on the update system).  If you do not have a DBS check, we can process the application on your behalf, and, if you register with the update system it will be valid forever and for other organisations.  (At present this costs £12.99 – let us know if you would like to go ahead with this.)  With 6 months advance warning, hopefully you can put things in place to make yourself available. If you haven’t done it recently or ever, it’s your turn next! This is always hugely appreciated.

It also explains how we need commitment from the children and parents throughout the term (particularly in the 2nd half of term as we get near to the performance).  We know that there will be certain circumstances when a child has to miss the occasional class; we find that if a child misses too many classes, they lose confidence and do not enjoy the experience of the show as much as they otherwise would.  Missing more than 4 sessions during the term is not advised.

Unless we hear otherwise, it is assumed that this page has been read and agreed before the start of term.

Please let me know if you don’t want photos of your children to appear on the website or in local publications/papers. If I don’t hear from you, it is assumed this is OK. Names are never used.
