Reintroduction of Music Tuition
After careful consultation with Waltham Forest and examination of the risk assessments for all parties, instrumental lessons on the keyboard and guitar are scheduled to resume next week on Wednesday 30th September.
Parents and carers of pupils who have previously had instrumental lessons will be contacted directly this week, followed by the parents and carers of pupils who were placed on the waiting list last year if places now become available.
In accordance with the advice from the Waltham Forest Music Service, the Governing body of Whitehall Primary have agreed that the cost of peripatetic music lessons will be £67.50 per term with immediate effect.
Parents and carers will see this increase reflected in the invoices for the Autumn term which will be raised imminently. Please note that, despite this increase, parents and carers still do not bear the full cost of music lessons as the school continues to subsidise these from its delegated budget.
The peripatetic teachers are very excited to be able to return to school and resume instrumental lessons. In the event that we are unable to allow visiting staff into school, contingency plans have been put in place to ensure that the pupils will have access to the lessons that have been paid for.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
