Miss Julia

Miss Julia is leaving us at the end of term to go on maternity leave.  She has been with us for 9 years and we know you will join us in wishing her the very best.  We are intending to buy her a gift and if you would like to contribute, please transfer the amount to our bank via EFT with Miss Julia as the reference. If you prefer, you could drop off cash to Mrs H in Peel Street Reception.

Why we have a uniform

Safety and comfort

School Identity and being part of a team

  • Wearing a uniform gives your child a sense of belonging and contributes to the ‘team’ atmosphere that we at Kew School of Dance value.  It ensures that the teacher can see correct body alignment and placement to ensure students’ technique is correct and safe. Uniform is an important part of the discipline of dance and helps put the students in the correct frame of mind.

Preparation for Class

We’d like to remind everyone to arrive before the start of class, not AT the time the class starts.  Parking and traffic are always bad here and you need to ensure you have enough time so that your child is ready to dance the minute the class begins. There are far too many instances of parents bringing children in more than 5 minutes late, then having to put shoes on or get changed.  This is disruptive to the other students and disrespectful to the teacher. It is also unsafe for the latecomer as s/he needs to warm up correctly at the start of the class. The students also need to go to the bathroom before class. In one class last week, there were 7 bathroom visits from 5 children - which means 2 students left their class for more than 5 minutes each time. 

Website and Email

Noticeboard - did you know you can find links to all mail outs and details of upcoming events on the website noticeboard?  https://www.kewschoolofdance.com/notice-board/

Our Tuesday Mail Outs are sent fortnightly for your convenience through SendPulse; class emails are sent through Class Manager as required and our admin@kewschoolofdance.com is a G-Suite account.  We have upgraded and optimised our email systems in recent months to reduce the likelihood of our email going to your Spam folders. However it is a good idea to always check your Spam folder regularly as legitimate email often ends up there.

If you don't open your Tuesday Mail Out email we will resend it to you seven days after we initially sent it.
