Covid-19 and Working with Schools

Our top priority it is to ensure that our return to teaching peripatetic lessons in schools in the autumn term is safe for both our pupils and teachers. Each school has its own challenges to overcome with regards to allowing us back, such as room availability and timetabling so arrangements will be different for each school. 

 

Guidance for schools and specific instruments is constantly changing, so we will be posting updates to this page with information pertaining to each of our schools. 

 

For every school, if you made a payment for the summer term and did not take online lessons your payment will be carried over to lessons when they resume. If a  payment is due from you, invoice due dates and amounts will vary depending on the return dates at each school. 

 

Sadly, for health or financial reasons some of our teachers will not be returning and to ensure suitable cover at each of our schools some staffing changes will need to be made. 

 

This information is likely to change over the coming weeks and will be updated accordingly. Should you have any questions please email schools@rhythmroom.co.uk, our administrator is flexibly furloughed, working limited hours but will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.

Alternatively, online lessons can be provided for the restricted instruments.
