*Ross Montgomery - Terms & Conditions

There is no limit on the number of classes that can join the session. Sessions can be conducted via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meets or Skype, with any English-speaking school in the world, providing the session can be done between 9:00am and 5.00pm UK time, subject to my availability.

I have PL insurance with the Society of Authors, with cover of up to £5m. Please note that a condition of such insurance is that an author is not left alone with students. I also have a fully updated DBS check, and I’m happy to send a scan of this in advance. I keep a copy of the scan on my phone should your organisation require it on the day, but if you require me to have a paper copy of my DBS with me, please let me know in advance.

I am happy for photographs to be taken before, during and after my talk. If you would like to share these on social media, please tag me! I’m @mossmontmomery on all platforms. Any recordings by either party must be agreed in advance. My recording licence may require further payment and will be subject to an agreement in terms.

If I cancel for any reason (which is extremely unlikely), I will make every effort to reschedule the visit at a mutually convenient date.

In the event that we have to cancel my visit due to a pandemic, I’m happy to make the visit a virtual one at our original agreed rate, or postpone a physical visit to another date within six months of the original visit.

On the day of my visit, I request that we get in touch using the planned platform to check that all equipment is working as it should. If there are technical issues on the day and the session cannot go ahead as planned, I am happy to postpone it to another date within one month. My session may not be recorded, other than by mutual agreement. If the event is recorded for future use, the audience should be notified and their parents’ consent gained in advance. The recording is for school use only, and may not be publicly broadcast, put up on YouTube or otherwise disseminated without consent.
