Taking the Welfare and safety of children and young people is extremely important to us and while Drum Lessons should be fun, its vital to have some well established procedures and ground rules.

Through the Musicians’ Union and in partnership with Educare, we have completed training in Child Protection in Education (Music) Level 2 to underpin our values and procedures in Child Protection and Welfare.

Keeping up to date with the latest news and completing new training and assessments where necessary, ensuring that learners are safe, comfortable and offered the best in lesson delivery is our ultimate aim.

Though not exhaustive, outlined below are some of the key principles in what GhostNote Academy will provide.

GhostNote Academy Code of Conduct Principles;

  • To respect all individuals whatever their age, developmental stage, ability, gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity.

  • Keep all communication with young people, children and adults on a professional level.
