If it is not possible to get cover, the teacher will endeavour to make the lesson up before the end of term. This often takes place during half-term.
• On rare occasions we may need to cancel a lesson. On these occasions lessons will be rescheduled. If we are unable to reschedule a lesson, or you are unable to attend the rescheduled lesson in holiday time, the lesson fee will be credited.
• We will always notify you of a cancelled lesson via phone, email or text message, which will be sent to a designated parent/guardian with the contact details that have been given to us.
