internal regulations

Everyone who is involved in Circusplaneet respects the structure and the agreements, but also has the right to have their say. Feel free to talk to employees if you have anything to say, or if you have any questions or suggestions. These rules and regulations can also be adjusted following your suggestions or remarks and will then take effect after approval by the Board of Directors. Would you like to be a member of the general meeting? Then apply via rvb@circusplaneet.be

Activities

During the lessons, the rehearsal room is only accessible to the teacher and the students of that particular lesson, unless the teacher decides otherwise. The others wait upstairs in the foyer. Parents do not enter the rehearsal room either. Participants and instructors must wear sports clothing that is suitable for the activities. Indoors only with inner shoes or barefoot. Teachers set a good example.

Smoking and drugs

Smoking is not allowed on the entire school grounds (both inside and outside). Outside the site, no smoking is allowed in the proximity of children and adolescents under the age of 18 during circus activities, and teachers are forbidden to drink alcohol during their teaching hours. If you are over 16 years of age, you should treat alcohol responsibly at Circusplaneet. It is forbidden for people under 16 to drink alcohol. Other drugs are not allowed. Participants and employees are prohibited from using other drugs during Circusplaneet activities. Under the influence of drugs, it is not possible to do circus.

Buildings and sites

Eating and drinking is not allowed in the rehearsal room. Drinking water is allowed. The secretariat is not accessible to anyone in the absence of people who have a key to the secretariat. The secretariat will be closed in their absence. Pets are not allowed in the training room. Pets are allowed outside the training room if they do not disturb anyone. The pet may not prevent anyone else from entering Circusplaneet, e.g. due to fear or an allergy.

Material

The circus equipment is at the disposal of the students during the lessons and of the members during the community training. Users of the material treat it ‘like a good housekeeper’. After use, the material is stored where it belongs. Any defects in the material will be reported to the responsible teachers.

Everyone is responsible for their own material that is left behind on Circusplaneet. Make sure you apply the necessary markings.

Circusplaneet cannot be held responsible for theft, loss or damage to personal belongings.

For safety reasons, balance and aerial acrobatics materials are only lent to teachers who know how to work with these materials.

Sustainability

Circusplaneet tries to deal with the planet in a sustainable way. We call on our members to contribute to this idea of sustainability.

Cross-border behaviour

Cross-border behaviour such as aggression, bullying and sexual harassment will not be tolerated. If you would like to report cross-border behaviour, please contact our Integrity Contact Point (API) at api@circusplaneet.be They handle every question discreetly and guarantee anonymity. Together with those involved, they will look for an appropriate solution in function of the reported incident. The interests of the victim always take precedence.

Safety

Together with all its members, Circusplaneet works towards a safe circus environment, but of course circus is never without risks. At the entrance of the buildings you will find posted safety regulations, an accident procedure and first aid guidelines that have to be followed.

Circusplaneet also wants to stimulate a mentally safe environment. The circus pedagogy is not competitive, and has an eye for sufficient differentiation in accordance with the wishes and needs of each individual. Circusplaneet also wants to be accessible to all children who want to do circus.
