Terms & Conditions

1. Enrolment

Entry to My Theatre Academy (MTA) is open to all, regardless of ability. MTA believes that all its members should be allowed the opportunity to work and develop in an atmosphere of friendship and encouragement. All students are therefore expected to contribute to the well being of the group and its projects by co-operative and considerate behaviour at all times.

 

MTA cannot accept behaviour which is, in our opinion, detrimental to the group, the children or the staff. In the interests of our students, MTA reserves the right to terminate a student's membership of the group should this requirement be breached.

 

All students will be under the care of MTA staff for the duration of sessions. MTA undertakes to provide a safe environment for children and staff at all times and, under the following general rules:

 

  • Keep up-to-date registers of attendance;

  • Maintain appropriate supervision ratios;

  • Ask that you keep us informed of contact details, emergency contact numbers and any changes to these, so that we may maintain up-to-date records;

  • Ask that you keep us informed of specific medical conditions, such as allergies, asthma, epilepsy so that we can maintain up-to-date records;

  • Ensure that a first-aid kit is available at the venue;

  • Ensure that those people working with the children as part of MTA have been subject to appropriate selection processes;

  • Ensure that MTA staff have current DBS Certification;
