Safeguarding & Quality Assurance
Wirral Schools' Music Service only works with respected instrumental/vocal tutors who are interviewed and auditioned before being appointed. All teaching staff have enhanced DBS disclosures and complete safeguarding training with Wirral Council. Please download a copy of the Safeguarding certificate on the left hand side if your school requires it.
All Music Service tutors will be subject to at least one quality assurance visit per year in school from a senior member of staff. During the quality assurance visit a member of our management team will observe the Music Service tutor in a lesson, and will ask your school for feedback. Staff will also be visited in school as part of the performance management process. The service is committed to providing support and guidance for all its staff and provides Continuous Professional Development to the highest standard.
Quality Assurance is available to schools who employ non-Music Service tutors for their music provision, and schools can also access safeguarding training for private music tutors through the Music Service if needed.
If you have any queries or concerns about music tuition in your school, please contact Neil Watson, our Quality Assurance Manager, on 0151 346 6539 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
