3. Behaviour Policy

3:1 KYT is a professional stage and screen academy and as such requires high standards of discipline from its students. Should a student behave in a consistently poor manner, as to disrupt the learning and enjoyment of others, ONE WARNING (Yellow Card) will be given to said student and their parent/carer will be informed. A second occurrence of poor behaviour (Red Card) will instantly terminate attendance at KYT with no refund of course fees. Parents will be notified to collect their child/ward immediately.

3:2 It is expected that all students will arrive on time and prepared for their class/workshop/rehearsal. Start and finish times are always well advertised.

 

4. Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy

4:1 KYT staff members wear a company t-shirt whilst working at KYT and must sign in and out at the beginning and the end of each session they attend.

4:2 No unauthorized adults are permitted to be in the room with the students at any time. If, for any reason parents/carers need to collect their child(ren) early, KYT will require prior notification. A KYT Staff member will bring the child to reception.

4:3 KYT official visitors, will sign-in and out at the reception desk and will be accompanied by a staff member at all times, until the relevant DBS checks have been completed, where required.

4:4 Students are expected to be on time, however, being too early can be problematic. Staff are happy to supervise students, if needed, 5 minutes prior to the start of session, but no earlier. Any earlier than that and we cannot officially be “in loco parentis”.

4:5 There are toilets at KYT that can be used by students; STAGEBUGS will be accompanied by a staff member. All other students may go independently. GROUP K must use the toilets by reception only.

4:6 In case of emergency, KYT staff can give consent on behalf of parents/carers, for anesthetic administration or any other emergency treatment to be given on the advice of a qualified practitioner.

 

5. Online Safety Policy

5:1 We do have an online presence and encourage our students to be a part of that. Students, however, are encouraged to post/comment positively and naturally be respectful and kind towards others online.

5:2 KYT staff members are not permitted to be ‘friends’ with or to ‘follow’ or be ‘followed by’ a student. Personal social media accounts are personal and we ask all students to respect that.

Students are encouraged to communicate via the WEAREKYT accounts and post photos and comments that are supportive and respectful of the KYT community.
