1. Student Policy for Ava’s Music School

     

    1.     ATTENDENCE

In order to keep all lessons running according to scheduled start and finish time, students are asked to arrive five (5) minutes prior to their start time.

In circumstances whereby you arrive up to 15 minutes after the lesson start time, the class will continue to operate, however an extension of the lesson time will not be offered and the lesson will conclude at the scheduled finish time. This is to ensure that all lessons are kept to the scheduled program and other students are not impacted by your late arrival.

  1. 2.     MISSED LESSONS / PRE-ARRANGED ABSENCES / CANCELLATION

Missed Lesson

If you do not present to a lesson and have not advised the school that you will not be attending, you will forfeit this lesson and no credit/make up lesson will be offered.

Pre-Arranged Absences     

If you provide the school with a minimum of 24hours notice that you will not be attending a lesson, a credit/make up session will be offered. Credit/make up sessions are limited to 1 lesson per month.

Pre-Arranged Extended Absences

In circumstances whereby you advise the school that you will not be attending two (2) or more consecutive lessons, the lesson time will be held until your specified return date. Failure to attend your lesson on the specified return date will result in Re-Enrolment being required to be completed and the Cancellation Fee applied.

Extended Absences Not Pre-Arranged

In circumstances whereby you miss two (2) or more lessons consecutively, will be treated as a Withdrawal of tuition and the Cancellation Fee applied. Re-Enrolment will be required to be completed should you wish to return to the school.

Cancellation

                In the event that you arrive later than 15 minutes after your scheduled lesson time, the lesson will be cancelled and you will be forfeited.

In circumstances such as teacher illness resulting in a class cancellation, Ava’s Music School will use SMS to communicate and a credit/make up lesson will be offered. Communication by SMS allows the school to inform people quickly of changes to their schedule, causing as little disruption as possible
