Attendance Monitoring Arrangements.

 As you will be aware we have a large number of pupils attending the Saturday Music Centre for lessons, choir, band and orchestral rehearsals. Can I ask all parent/carers were possible, to inform staff in advance of any absence. If this is not possible I would ask that parent/carers either email me at  Mon.-Frid* ( *office hrs only.) or telephone the Saturday Music Centre Office on – 07800 629 711. Parent/carers are also requested to keep the music service up to date with any changes to emergency contact numbers.

Should your child need to remain in the school building out with their rehearsal time, I would ask that for Health and Safety reasons you ensure they remain in the cafe area until they are collected or their next class begins.

Thank you in advance for your help in these matters.
