1) All Bookings:

1.1) Making a Booking:

Our studio is in Leeds (https://djschooluk.org.uk/studio/). Please ensure you can travel to us before making any bookings.

All dates and times must be booked by agreement with DJ School UK. Your agreed session time cannot be extended or moved so please allow ample time to travel and/or park your vehicle. When you make a booking you should note the direct contact of the tutor who will be hosting you. If you need any information on the day you should contact that tutor directly. Please be aware – there may be a session before and after yours – if your call is not answered it is because your tutor is busy – if you don’t leave a message they will ignore it. If you are late you will still need to leave at the end of your booked time to allow for the next booking to start promptly. On arrival please ring the buzzer at reception in Yorkshire Dance so we can come and meet you. First-time bookings are only considered confirmed once full payment has been received in advance.

1.2) Behaviour:

We run a “3 strikes and you’re out” policy with regard to behaviour. Our full Behaviour, Discipline and Complaints Policy is available to view as a download on request.

The same “3 strikes and you’re out” policy applies to:

  • people who cause interruption, disruption or delays in other customers’ sessions.

  • parents who collect their children late.

All our staff are CRB checked, hold Public Liability Insurance, only use equipment which is PAT tested and adhere to our Child Protection Policy which is available to view here: https://djschooluk.org.uk/policies.

All our activities have undergone stringent risk assessments and satisfy our health and safety policy which is available to view here: https://djschooluk.org.uk/policies.

1.3) Transport, Drop-off and Pick-up:

DJ School UK does not accept children without having a contact number for a responsible adult who will bring them to the studio and collect them at the end of their session.

Parents/carers should ensure their young person has gained entry to the studio before leaving. We cannot guarantee the safety of children if you drop them off outside the building and drive off or leave them in reception. Our studio is only one of several in the building and you must ensure that DJ School UK staff are aware of your child’s arrival and have accepted responsibility for your child before you leave.

Similarly, parents and carers must be available to collect their young people at the end of sessions. If our staff cannot begin their next session because they are waiting for you to collect your child, DJ School UK reserves the right to charge you for the full cost of the missed session.

You can call us on the internal intercom once you have arrived to collect your child or you can arrange with DJ School UK staff to have your child escorted to reception at an allotted time.

If someone other than the agreed parent/carer is collecting the child/young person, you must ensure that DJ School UK staff are aware of this. A password, or another agreed method of identification, must be arranged in advance with DJ School UK staff. The chosen method for identification must be arranged before the young person’s session commences, either on arrival at the session or by telephone before noon on the day of the session. The https://djschooluk.org.uk/contact/ page of the DJ School UK website has mobile phone numbers for key members of staff if you need to call us.

If you give permission for the young person/child under your care to make their own way to and from the sessions, and you accept all responsibility for anything that may occur while the young person/child is not within the boundary of the venue, please contact DJ School UK using the details here https://djschooluk.org.uk/contact/ to inform us of this. No child will be allowed to leave the venue alone without such prior agreement.

1.4) Medical conditions/Allergies:

We may, at times and according to availability, supply soft drinks, juice, biscuits and fruit but it is your responsibility to send your young person with food and drink if they require it.

With this in mind please inform us of any medical conditions, allergies or personal considerations concerning the young person which we should know about.

If you feel it is necessary, please use https://djschooluk.org.uk/contact/ to contact us with details of the young persons’ General Practitioner.

When purchasing credits for DJ Clubs please be aware that your credits will expire at the end of the academic year in which you bought them. This means if you buy 10 credits in September 2017 you must have used them all by the end of July 2018 as credits will no longer be valid during or after the summer holidays.

Adults are not permitted to wait within the studio with their young people during shared clubs. Our building has a warm waiting area with Wi-Fi and we respectfully ask all parents and carers wait there.

4) Group or external organisation bookings:

4.1) Fees:

DJ School UK prefers payment in advance via BACS but also accepts official purchase orders for payment via invoice no later than 28 working days after the session date. Bookings are not confirmed until DJ School UK receives either a suitable purchase order or full payment.

We are DJs and tutors, although highly experienced in working with young people and trained in child protection we are not certified to act as youth workers or SEN workers. If your young person/people has SEN or access requirements you must ensure you supply specifically trained support staff for these needs.

Our studio can accommodate 16 YP working in pairs, or 10 individuals. If you are arranging a session at your own venue, DJ School UK are not able to bring as much equipment and thus the number of YP able to access the DJ decks will be lower. Please ensure you have read the full description of the service you are booking and/or have arranged a specific selection of services by prior agreement with us. In cases of a bespoke service, DJ School UK will draw up a service level agreement which must be signed by both a representative of your organisation and DJ School UK.

4.2) Group or external organisation bookings in our studio.

You must arrange parking and travel at your own cost and in your own time. You are expected to arrive at the DJ School UK studio at the agreed time to start the session promptly. Regardless of late arrivals, DJ School UK reserves the right to end your session at the pre-arranged time.

We can provide basic snacks and refreshments by prior arrangement. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring pack lunches. All food and drink must be consumed outside of the studio space or away from our electronic equipment. Food and drink may be consumed in the building reception area. DJ School UK do not plan to have breaks in our sessions so if you need time for a snack, please discuss this with us in advance.

4.3) Group or external organisation bookings at a venue of your choice.

Our requirements:

DJ School UK will arrive at your venue with heavy equipment to be loaded in at the beginning and out again at the end of the day and do not want your sessions to be affected or delayed by this.

To ensure that the day is a real success, DJ School UK staff will require a suitable parking space, preferably close to the venue, and a room in which to hold the session, which should be reasonably close to the parking space. Ideally, the route to the room will not involve stairs.

We will need a guide to help us find the room quickly.

In the room, DJ School UK will require sturdy tables on which to set up the equipment and a safe connection to mains power. If your event is outdoors, you will be required to provide a roofed area with safe maintained 240V power, (eg a marquee with generator). Unfortunately, a gazebo is not considered to be a suitable roof for electronic equipment in British weather.

If you book only one of our artists for your session, you will be required to provide additional support staff for the duration of the sessions. DJ School UK are not insured to be the sole adult responsible for a group of young people.

6) Cancellations/refunds:

If you know you will be unable to attend your booked session, please contact DJ School UK as soon as possible, in advance of your session, to discuss the circumstances. If DJ School UK is unable to reschedule your booking, a partial refund may be offered. All such instances are considered on a case-by-case basis.

If you miss your session or cancel with less than 48 hours’ notice, your credit for that session is non-refundable.

If you arrive late to your session, the session will still have to finish at the pre-arranged time so please familiarise yourself in advance with our location, nearby car parks and public transport links.

6) Consent:
