Duty of Care

The Quay's Duty of Care
Young people and vulnerable adults

The Quay, in compliance with Statute Law and general good sense, is fully aware of its responsibilities towards children and vulnerable adults when they are on theatre premises involved in an activity organised and run by The Quay.

The Quay makes the following assurances:

All Classes, Summer Schools, Workshops and Productions are designed to be stimulating, informative, safe and fun.

    Alcohol, listed drugs and tobacco are not permitted to be brought into the theatre or The Jetty under any circumstances. Any student, under age, in possession of these commodities will be immediately excluded, having  advised his or her parents.
    The teachers and practitioners have all been checked with the Criminal Records Bureau to ensure that there is no question concerning their suitability to work with children and young people.
    All children and young people involved with production work at the theatre, rehearsals and performance will be chaperoned in accordance with the County Council's regulations.
    Activities at The Quay are conducted in accordance with the Health and Safety regulations applied by the theatre's local authority licence.

What The Quay asks from the participants and their parents:

    To advise the Box Office if there are any medical or health problems which might affect the student's ability to do certain exercises.
    To keep the teacher, or the Box Office informed in the event that the student is unable to attend a particular class.
    To arrive and arrange collection of students on time.

If parents or guardians have any questions or observations regarding any aspect of the classes and workshops taking place at The Quay, please speak to the teacher or the Theatre Co-ordinator, Sharon Buckler.
