Our Aim:

 

  1. We aim to provide high quality French classes for children following the Les Puces method of language teaching. 

    Your child will be taught a new topic every two months, alongside a continuation of vocabulary throughout their time with us. The sessions comprise of vocabulary time, singing and dancing time, make it project time, and story time.

 

Sickness:

 

2.  Parents / carers please inform Les Puces if a child is sick or unable to attend a class.  You will not be refunded for missing a class but it will help your teacher with his or her planning. 

 

Child Welfare:

 

3. Les Puces welcomes children from many different ethnic groups, backgrounds and creeds. Similarities and differences are valued and respected and all children are treated equally.

 

4.  Les Puces has its own safeguarding policy that is followed by all Les Puces teachers and staff.  A copy of this policy is available on request.

 

5.  Before your child attends their first class, we will ask for safeguarding information from you via email. Please return this information promptly. This includes date of birth, contact details, allergies (we may provide snacks in the pack occasionally), and photo permissions.

 

Payment:

 

6.  You must pay for your lessons for the module in advance via direct debit.  The price you will be charged is for the six lessons in the module:  £105 for group lessons and £195 for private lessons.  This price includes the bilingual book (at £8 club price) and the project, plus postage to the UK.  Postage to other countries will be quoted on application.  

 

7.  The price for the module is not refundable once the first lesson of the term has started.

 

8.  Payment can only be made through our bank payment system.  You will receive details when you sign up and you must use this system for payment. We do not accept any other method of paying. We do not hold any details of your bank and you are free to cancel your payments at any time.

 

9.  If you wish to leave Les Puces you must give at least fourteen days’ notice before the start of the next module.  If you do not give this notice you will be charged an admin fee of £10 plus £8 for the cost of your book which we will already have purchased and which we will post on to you.

 

Attendance and Lateness:

 

10.  Classes are of one hour duration.  Your teacher will not wait for you to turn up but will just start and finish on time.  Please be considerate when entering a class late.

 

11.  Module dates are every two months. Jan/Feb, Mar/Apr etc. Zoom classes start in the second week of the module and run for 6 weeks.  If you are ever unsure, email us at bonjour@lespuces.co.uk for more details.

Discipline:

 

16.  The parents / carers hereby confirm that they accept the authority of the maitre or maitresse to take all reasonable disciplinary or preventative action necessary to safeguard and promote the welfare of each child. We will always endeavour to contact the parent / carer with any reports of disruptive behaviour.  

 

17.  Parents / carers may be asked to remove a child from the class if the behaviour of that child is unacceptable or disruptive to the other pupils. Continued disruption or rudeness to Les Puces staff will result in the child being stopped from attending, under a three-strike system.  There will be no refund in these circumstances.

 

Complaints:

 

18.  It is hoped that parents / carers will not have to complain about any aspect of the service we provide, however, should the need arise; there are three stages at which complaints can be considered.

Stage 1 – The Informal Resolution
