Classroom behaviour policy

In order to ensure a safe and happy environment, conducive to learning and creativity, I encourage positive behaviour. Children are made aware of the boundaries in my classes during their first session and reminded regularly. Please see my classroom behaviour policy

Cancellation Policy for Summer Creative Writing Classes 

This applies to all cancellations, for any reason.

If the class is over-subscribed (i.e. there is a waiting list from which I can directly fill your place), and you are cancelling your child’s place with at least 14 full days’ notice of cancellation before the day your child is due to attend, I will be able to give you a full cash refund. This is the only circumstance in which I can give a cash refund. If this is not possible, I may be able to give a credit note in the following circumstances: 

To give a 100% credit note*, I need at least 14 full days’ notice of cancellation before the day your child is due to attend.

To give a 50% credit note*, I need at least 7 to 13 full days’ notice of cancellation before the day your child is due to attend.

If you cancel your course without giving at least 7 full days’ notice before the day your child is due to attend, you will not receive any credit.‎

*Please note that credit notes will be valid for 12 months from the date of issue.
