Are my children safeguarded at the brass group?

We want to reassure every parent and guardian that we take welfare and safeguarding very seriously. We work in accordance with the North Tyneside Music Education Hub Safeguarding Policy, and the Safeguarding policies of each participating School.

Every music tutor has undergone an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check and provided 2 independent references before being added to the North Tyneside Council external providers database.

Every brass group session is attended by a member of the School teaching staff. In the event that a member of teaching staff is not available to attend, the brass group session will be cancelled.

We encourage parents and guardians to attend the brass groups as observers and even, resources permitting, join the brass group as an adult learner!

All the brass group activities currently take place within a group setting. Our policy is not to provide one to one tuition.
