Our ARTBASH Camp Policies

 

Keeping Information Current

Parents and guardians are responsible for providing emergency contact information and any other important information prior to their first workshop at the ARTBASH Studio. Please be sure we have up to date contact details. Please email bookings@artbash.co.uk to up date.

 

Booking Process

For all workshops, with the exception of Camp, booking is made through a booking form here. If there are no spaces available, we will add your child to our waiting list.

 

Camp Booking Process

Booking is made through our booking system. If bookings are closed, you can subscribe to our waiting list here. Or contact us here for more information. Although our Camp gets booked up very quickly, there is some movement so don’t lose hope, your child could still get an ARTBASH place on our Camp.

 

Workshop Withdrawals

We are happy to offer a refund if the withdrawal is made up to two weeks before the start date of workshops to allow us to open up the place to another child. If the withdrawal happens less than two weeks before the session starts, we cannot guarantee a full refund but will do our best to fill your child’s place to enable us to issue either a full or partial refund. Please note a £10 administration fee will apply to any refunds.

 

Absences

If your child is going to be absent, you need to let us know in advance or on the day of the workshop.

 

Additional Needs and Medical Requirements

Please make sure that all information is filled out on the booking form for any additional needs. It is essential that medication such as inhalers or EpiPens are clearly explained to ARTBASH staff prior to your child attending.

 

Sickness Policy

ARTBASH is all about sharing creative ideas and not germs. If your child is ill, please keep them home. Equally, if your child is too ill for school, they are too ill for an ARTBASH session.  In current times any child with a cough colds or fever no matter how mild can attend the camp.

 

Food Allergy Information

We offer snacks of fruit, digestive biscuits, crackers as well as juice or water at all our after school workshops and as a midmorning snack during our Camp. For your child’s safety, it is parents and carers responsibility to keep us informed, at time of booking, of any food allergies or any other allergies that may affect them at ARTBASH.

 

Clothing

We love to get messy at ARTBASH and we love seeing children unleash their inner artist to explore a host of methods. Some paints can cause permanent damage to clothes. We do have protective t-shirts that we encourage ALL children to wear. Please encourage your child to wear them.

 

Workshop Behaviour

 

Art is all about creativity, exploration and fun. Our studio is set up to allow for sessions that get the best from each child in a safe manner. If we find that a child is continuously disruptive or unable to engage in our workshops, we may have to consider if ARTBASH is right for them.

 

We work to a three-tiered policy and acknowledge that children sometimes forget what is appropriate behaviour in the workshops. We remind them and give them the opportunity to put things right.

 

If disruptive behaviour continues, we will talk to parents/responsible adults to support us in their behaviour at ARTBASH.

 

If the child continues to behave disruptively, we may ask them to leave.

 

First Aid

Our ARTBASH team is first aid trained and have up to date certificates. Our first aid procedure can be read in our polices or on request. In the rare instance of your child being unwell or injured, we will contact parents/responsible adults immediately. Please ensure emergency contact details are up to date.

 

DBS (Disclosing and Barring Service) check

All our team hold a valid DBS certificate.
