All our staff have DBS clearance, are licensed chaperones and have received paediatric first aid training. We also train our staff to deal with the various needs of children and young people of all ages, and to have an empathetic approach.
We comply with all the relevant Safeguarding and Child Protection requirements of local authorities, which are designed to protect children when taking part in performances.
Safety and Security
We have a 24/7 Control Room on site, which monitors our properties and grounds. We close and lock the main gates to our site when classes are in progress.
We have an access control system on Studio S Reception doors, and a gate at the top of the stairs to the studio, beyond which only authorised staff have access.
We ask that our customers understand that they cannot drive through the gates onto our property. Apart from reasons of safety, our planning permission does not allow customers to use our very small car park. There is free parking available on Station Road Car Park, which is situated in very close proximity to Studio S. The Senate Group will not accept liability for any loss, damage or accident which takes place in it's courtyard / grounds.
Sadly, it is necessary to mention here that Studio S wishes to make it very clear that rudeness to our staff will not be tolerated. We do reserve our right to ask customers who are rude to staff to leave our premises. We make no apology that our policy is on EVERY occasion, to ensure that the safety of children is our absolute priority.
