Behaviour Discipline and Complaints Policy

We at DJ School UK aim to have a supportive, creative, comfortable, safe and respectful workplace and atmosphere for all to learn the skills and techniques of the modern DJ and for all to enjoy their time with us. To help us with this we have drawn up the following policy which relates to the behaviour of the young people on our courses and the routes by which complaints can be made if absolutely necessary. Our staff are all trained in Child Protection, fully understand and are in agreement with our own Child Protection Policy (available from the downloads page of our website or on request), and will use the code of conduct therein to maintain the best working conditions for all at DJ School UK.

We do not expect to ever need to apply the following policies and sincerely hope we don’t have to.
Behaviour Policy
We require that all young people at DJ SchoolUK:

  • Show respect for all children at the school treating them as they would wish to be treated.
  • Understand that swearing, abusive or hurtful language is not acceptable and that aggressive behaviour or violence will not be tolerated.
  • Show respect for all personal property and the facilities.
  • Show respect for all staff. Listen to and follow instructions from the staff team.
  • Understand that one child’s behaviour will not be allowed to endanger the other children in the group by absorbing or distracting the supervising staff.
When dealing with any behavioural issues our staff are trained to act within accordance of our child protection policy (available on the website or by request). We will never intervene physically unless there is imminent danger to other young people or staff.

Disciplinary Procedure
We have a 3 strikes and you’re out policy.

Strike 1) If your child is in breach of our behaviour policy we will in the first instance talk to them within the bounds of our child protection policy and code of conduct. At the first opportunity or at the end of that day we will inform you of their behaviour and of what was said during our conversation with them.

Strike 2) If they continue to breach our behaviour policy we will repeat what was said during our previous conversation, call you and ask you to talk to them. We will also give you the option of removing them from the school.

Strike 3) If they stay and continue to breach the policy we will insist you come to remove them from the school.

No refunds will be made for children removed from the school due to their behaviour.
