How do I let you know about my child's absence?

Welfare of pupils at music centre

It is expected that pupils will arrive in good time for the start of their activity. Should your child need to be absent for an activity, inform music.centre@westsussexmusic.co.uk in advance of the session.

Pupils must be collected promptly at the published finishing time of the activity and must remain in the building after their activity until collected. Parents/carers must advise their child not to leave the premises with anyone other than the nominated responsible adult. Pupils must tell a member of staff if they are ever approached or offered a lift by a stranger.

Music Centre staff may on occasion need to release pupils for good reason for part of an activity, for example, to use the toilet. Pupils are expected to return to their activity as soon as possible and Music Centre staff cannot be held responsible for pupils who do not return promptly. It is strictly forbidden for pupils to leave an activity without previously obtaining the permission of the member of staff.

Where can we find the music for rehearsals?

All ensemble music will continue to be stored on Student Zone, along with practice notes and ideas from the ensemble director. Please ensure that you have signed into Student Zone, and checked out your ensembles page to print the music needed for Saturdays, each week.

If you have any trouble with access Student Zone, please email me as soon as possible so that this can be resolved.

If you are not able to print at home, please email music.centre@westsussexmusic.co.uk with your child’s name and ensemble, and we will arrange for a copy of the music to be available for your child.

What should we bring to rehearsals?

Your musical resources

  • A music stand
  • Pencil and eraser
  • A copy of all the required music

You might also want to bring

  • A facemask
  • A bottle of water
  • A snack

What is there for me while my child is in rehearsals?
