Policy statement/aims

The following policy has been formulated to ensure that all classes delivered by KA Arts tutors online, are delivered in a safe manner to help protect our students and staff.

KA Arts safeguarding policy will be followed and adhered to by the tutors, the same as in all face-to-face classes.
• Classes will be delivered online with the Principal of the school present on every call for all group classes.
• During any one-to-one private sessions, the parent/caregiver is advised to be present. But should not distract/become involved in the lesson that is being delivered.
• The Zoom software will be used for all group classes. (https://zoom.us)
• Tutors and Parents/Students should only use these sessions to deliver/receive the
classes and should not be used for general communication. Should a Tutor/Student/Parent need to communicate with KA Arts, this should be done by calling or emailing the Principal (Hello@KAarts.co.uk / 07825 371 945)
• When teaching online, the tutors will dress appropriately, and where possible in KA Arts attire.
• The students will also be required to wear the appropriate uniform for the class they are receiving.
• For any dance/movement session, the students would not have to wear their leotards, but should be in clothing that does not restrict their movement.
• Should a student wear inappropriate attire, they will be terminated from the call and be asked to return to the call once they are appropriately dressed.
• A parent/caregiver will need to be within the student’s home during the sessions in case of injuries.
