Instrumental/Vocal lessons for new pupils starting in the Spring Term 2019
We will be sending you in the internal schools post a supply of new EMS instrumental/vocal tuition application forms which should be given to any pupils who wish to start instrumental/vocal lessons in the SPRING TERM 2019. A copy of the application form is attached. (Please note pupils who are already receiving lessons through EMS do not need to complete a new application form.)
Also attached is a flyer you may wish to display, and our general information sheet to parents ‘Learning to Play a Musical Instrument’
Parents/carers may apply for their child to have lessons in school (subject to the usual minimum number of pupils requiring lessons on any one instrument and adequate school accommodation) or for lessons at our Saturday Music Centre (at Houndsfield School) or at our Tuesday evening Music Centre (at Highlands School).
Application forms should reach Enfield Music Service office by Friday 9th November 2018.
Free/subsidised lessons for FSM / Pupil Premium / LAC / Adopted pupils.
EMS regrettably has no budget to be able to provide free or subsidised lessons. If your school is willing to pay or subsidise lessons for FSM/Pupil Premium & LAC/Adopted pupils, we would ask you to inform parents.
Procedure for processing applications for free/subsidised lessons
Before we can register pupils for free or subsidised lessons each term, we ask parents to provide EMS with a letter of confirmation that the school is willing to fund/part-fund the lessons for that particular term. A template letter is attached which the school could use for this purpose. By issuing these letters to parents who apply, we hope this be useful to the school to keep an advanced record of the number of pupils the school is supporting each term.
Enfield Music Service Open Day – Saturday 29th September, 9.15am-12.30pm
We will be holding an Open Day at our Saturday Centre (at Houndsfield School, Houndsfield Road, Edmonton N9 7RE)on Saturday 29th September, 9.15am-12.30pm. Parents and pupils are welcome to come along and ‘try and instrument’ and observe other music activities at the Centre. EMS staff will be available to give advice to parents about applying for instrumental lessons in schools and at the Saturday Centre. Flier attached.
Instrumental lessons for teachers
If any teachers in your school wish to receive instrumental lessons this may be possible subject to the usual conditions regarding availability of tutors etc. The standard fees apply. Subject to the agreement of the Headteacher an application form should be sent to EMS and the form should be marked ‘TEACHER’.
If you need extra copies of the Application Form, please feel free to photocopy the attached, or it will be available to download from Enfield Council’s website: www.enfield.gov.uk (search ‘Enfield Music Service’) or we can send a further supply of forms to you on request.
Thank you for your continued support. If you require any further information don’t hesitate to contact the Music Service office.
