Face life's adventure without fear, till safely home where the rainbow ends.
Italia Conti, 1911
Italia Conti prides itself on the supportive and caring ‘family’ atmosphere we offer our pupils. This is made possible by the relatively small number of pupils in each class, combined with high pupil/tutor contact hours. Pupils have access to continual pastoral care and receive regular individual tutorials with assigned course tutors and our designated safeguarding lead. All members of staff conduct classes in a supportive and mutually respectful manner. Italia Conti's 'open door’ policy allows pupils to fully communicate with their peers and staff and they are encouraged to express and discuss any difficulties they may be experiencing.
Learning support is offered to pupils who have learning difficulties. Qualified staff are trained to work with learners and offer extra literacy support and assistance.
MEDICAL & HEALTH
Many on-site staff are first aid trained and able to attend to any minor ailments and a pupil welfare officer is usually on duty. The welfare officer also acts as an important confidant to pupils with personal or medical problems and will arrange counselling, specialist or medical appointments as required. Regular remedial in house physiotherapy clinics are held at the school and the welfare officer has contact with a number of local practitioners should any pupils require these additional services. All emergencies are referred to hospital and the welfare officer has access to pupils medical notes. Due to the nature of the course, pupils are advised to arrange private medical insurance by the commencement of their course. We recommend that all pupils register with a doctor if living away from home.
Full lunches are available from the canteen and are compulsory for all Theatre Arts School Pupils. Snacks and light refreshments are also available.
