COVID-19 Schools guidance
During the Covid-19 pandemic Kent Music has strived to keep access to music education available as much as possible through a combination of online provision and working closely with our colleagues in schools.
Following the government’s new roadmap to easing lockdown in the UK announced in February, we are pleased to let you know of our approach to teaching music for the coming weeks and months, and how we can continue to support you.
We are planning on a return to face-to-face teaching in schools from after the Easter holidays, not from March 8th. We believe that leaving these extra few weeks will allow you, your staff, and students, to settle into the new system and finalise guidance, allowing for a smooth return to face-to-face lessons for everyone.
Your local Area Manager should be in touch with you in the lead-up to the Easter holidays and the new term to discuss plans, risk assessments and your needs.
During the last lockdown easing in December 2020, we were successfully teaching over 50% of our lessons face-to-face in schools. With your cooperation, we hope to be able to return to, and then beat that achievement before the end of this academic year.
We have come to the below decisions about our tuition services. Each section contains information on our approach to that service, and answers to any relevant FAQs you may have.
