To participate

If you are not accompanying your child (for example a 14 year old who is walking in or getting the bus), we will need you to complete the authorization form in advance. For insurance reasons, we can't allow anyone to participate who has not completed this as it make us aware of medical, physical or other issues we need to be mindful of. 

All actors and dancers should wear suitable clothing for the classes. Socks may not be worn instead of shoes - this is dangerous on wooden floors and you can slip - if you do not have dance shoes, wear plimsoles or other soft shoes with grip. 

If you are attending for the day - please bring food and drink - our chaperones will not be able to leave the building to go to the shops with you. We do not allow any pre-teens to leave in between classes unless it is with a parent. Any teens under 16 will need a letter authorising them to leave unaccompanied.

We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to bullies. If anyone makes anyone else feel upset or threatened, they will be removed at once. Being rude, disruptive or breaking property will also not be tolerated. Violent language or behaviour will result in immediate withdrawl of a place in a class or workshop. 

The school do not allow smoking on the premises. 

Mobile phones are not permited inclass and must be left in bags or with reception.

We are an inclusive school - if you have a physical challenge, let us know! We have access for wheelchair users, and Junior Theatre Company classes can accommodate different needs. As long as a student can be autonomous (without a parent/carer on hand) they should be fine to take part. Please note - we do not allow parents or carers to stay in class. Only Artemis staff who have been DBS checked and trained are permitted as part of our child protection policy and in line with Ofsted guidelines.
