TERMS & CONDITIONS
Acceptance of our services will be taken to represent agreement to these Terms & Conditions. These Terms & Conditions come into effect upon first attendance.
By beginning tuition and/or an assessment, you consent to be assessed and tutored at INICIO.
Each student will be tutored for (and therefore pay for) a minimum of one session per week, every week during our engagement. Sessions are limited to pre-arranged times only.
The charge per session is £35. Session fees are reviewed on an annual basis and come into effect on September 1st of each calendar year.
To discontinue sessions, we require 4 weeks notice. You may attend your normal sessions in the 4 week notice period. No refund will be given if you do not attend lessons in the notice period.
We reserve the right to cancel and stop your child’s tuition with immediate effect should a payment remain outstanding for longer than fourteen days.
A “week” runs from Monday to Sunday. If you wish to reschedule a session, 24 hours’ notice or more must be provided for the session to be used as a catch up session, which must be taken whilst the student is still an active student at INICIO (paying for weekly sessions) and outside of their usual weekly session. If we have less than 24 hours’ notice, the session will be paid for but lost, as all sessions are pre-arranged and it is unlikely that a slot can be filled without sufficient notice. Non-attendance without notice will also be charged in full. We offer no refunds for missed lessons and we are not responsible for any missed lessons.
Payments are taken 4 weekly in advance by Direct Debit. Before a Direct debit begins, we accept interim payments by cash or BACS transfer. These are the only methods of payments.
Students should be aware that they are attending INICIO to study and are expected to behave responsibly at all times. Activity which could cause disturbance to other students or staff will result in instant dismissal. In such case no refund of fees will be made.
Parents or guardians will accept full liability for any loss or damage caused by the student to INICIO’s premises or property.
In the interests of the student’s well-being whilst at INICIO, the centre must be informed of any medical or other conditions affecting the student.
Requests for reports, feedback or any other form of correspondence other than routine feedback to parents are chargeable.
INICIO will not accept any responsibility for personal injury or loss of or damage to personal property of any kind while using the facilities in the studio.
