STAGE SCHOOL AUSTRALIA CODE OF CONDUCT

- Follow instructions from staff.
- Don’t abuse each other, the facilities, or any property. Stage School Australia operates a zero tolerance policy towards violence and bullying.
- Wear your uniform & bring you bag, water bottle, script & pencil to rehearsals.

If you are “to be collected” you must remain inside the venue with a staff member until you are collected. If you are “may leave alone” you will be dismissed on your own at the end of the call. This applies to rehearsals, workshops and performances.
- Attend your performances. Performances are compulsory, any absences must be approved in advance or with a medical certificate. More information about this will be distributed when performance dates are confirmed.
Discipline & Warning Policy
If you display unacceptable behaviour in class, your teacher will give you a warning. This is to officially tell you that your behaviour needs to change, and give you a chance to improve. We involve parents/guardians at this stage so they can help you improve behaviour. After two official warnings, subsequent breaches of rules would result in removal from class and cancellation of your place. If your behaviour threatens the safety of you or others, or risks significant property damage, it may lead to immediate removal from the class and cancellation of your place. If a student is removed from class, fees for will be calculated in accordance with the Payment Terms and Conditions.
Health and Allergens Policy
Stage School Australia is committed to the health of all students and staff members. Whilst we aim, as far as practicable, to provide a safe and healthy environment, we recognise that achieving a completely allergen free setting is difficult, particularly in an extra-curriculum based context. As such, Stage School Australia considers communication, education and the implementation of practical strategies to be most effective in reducing exposure to known allergens.
Stage School Australia has adopted and implemented a range of procedures and risk minimisation strategies to:
- Reduce the risk of a student having an anaphylactic reaction at school; and
- Ensure that staff are trained to respond appropriately if a student suffers an anaphylactic reaction.
If your child suffers any allergies or anaphylaxis, it is imperative that you supply Stage School Australia with the essential information. If this information is provided to us on your child’s enrolment form, we will also require a Medical Action Plan for our records and the appropriate medication must be with your child when attending all Stage School Australia events. Our Site Managers are fully trained in Anaphylactic Management. Upon receipt of the Action Plan, the Site Manager will be in contact arrange a meeting at our venue to discuss any special requirements regarding your child’s situation.
Whilst we will take all reasonable steps to ensure staff are adequately trained and for the general conduct of our classes, we do not accept any responsibility for any illness or injury suffered as a result of participation in classes or other activity organised by Stage School Australia.
