Child Protection and Safeguarding Reports
Pixie Studios has a responsibility to share personal and sensitive information in the interest of safeguarding if we have any concerns for a child’s welfare.
We first contact the NSPCC who then make a decision whether to pass on the information given to the local authorities. Please see our Safeguarding Policy for more detailed information.

Due to the nature of safeguarding, there is no option for you to request this data is removed.

Please expect to receive an email from us regarding relevant information. We strive never to cancel.
Pixie Studios students are expected to look at their Pixie Studios teacher, listen to their teacher, join in at all times, and behave respectfully and accordingly in all classes.
Unruly behaviour conducted by any student will eventually lead to their removal from the class.
Pixie Studios has the right to withdraw any student’s place at Pixie Studios at any time after experiencing unruly, unreasonable behaviour in class and without notice.
No refund will be given in this instance.
All students must be groomed appropriately for their session.
If a student does not adhere to uniform regulations and appropriate grooming, they may be refused entry to class.
All students and parents are expected to be supportive without question about any creative decisions, choreographic content, casting roles made by Pixie Studios for any public performance opportunities, watching week classes or shows.
All parents are expected to respect that moving up a level or participating in performances at Pixie Studios will happen when their child is ready and the decision is made by our Pixie Studios teachers.
Teaching dance is a physical activity and a teacher will sometimes need to make physical contact with a student to show an idea or to correct the student’s position.
This can include lifting or adjusting arms, legs, rib cage, hips, feet, or hands, and moving one student in relation to another.
Where contact is needed, we will remain sensitive to the student’s wishes and put their welfare first. In all cases, we will say why and how we will be correcting the student’s position before making any contact.
