There will be a drop in session at the Southend Adult Community College, Ambleside Drive, SS1 2UP, 9.30am-11.30am on both Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 31st July for those wishing to return an instrument. When arriving at the College please ask for Music on Sea at the Main Reception.
Instruments can only be returned to a member of the Music on Sea Team which must be by appointment or at the drop in session. Members of staff at the Southend Adult Community College will not be able to accept instruments in our absence. Under no circumstances should an instrument be returned to a school or passed on to another student.
If you are unable to make the session mentioned above please contact us on email@example.com to arrange another date for the instrument to be returned towards the end of the holidays. If you have not informed Music on Sea by Monday 9th September that you wish to return the instrument you will be invoiced for the Autumn term hire fee.
Music on Sea School Survey
As part our funding agreement with Arts Council England we are required to submit information about music provision in Southend schools.
Please help us by completing the audit for the 2018-19 academic year. Click here to access the Primary survey or click here to access the Secondary survey.
Please complete the survey even if you don’t use Music on Sea for your instrument delivery as we need an overall picture of all music provision in our schools.
While the survey is kept easy to complete and user friendly there are some numbers you will need to gather before starting the survey:
Number of pupils receiving Whole Class Instrumental Teaching (Primary only)
Pupils receiving instrumental tuition broken down into: Key Stage; boys; girls; PPG funding; SEND register; PPG and SEND (See note in questions); 1 to 1 individual; small group (2 to 5); large group (6 to 12)
Numbers attending school ensembles and groups. If a pupil attends more than one, include them in all totals
Please complete the survey by Wednesday 31st July
If you have any questions please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
