Safeguarding and Special Requirements

- We want every child to feel safe and included during the workshop.

- Please let us know if you have any children with mobility or special needs so we can work with you to accommodate their needs.

- Most of our venues are fully accessible but in some it may be limited, such as the stage area. If you’d like more information about access in the venue please get in touch with the hub event lead.

- If a child would benefit from coming early to have a look around and meet the team please let us know and we will be very happy to organise this.

- Cumbria Music Staff will wear branded polo shirts at events so they are easy to identify by staff and pupils. We are committed to ensuring that we keep young people safe.

- We have appropriate procedures in place and use the Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership for advice and guidance.

- Music Services staff have enhanced DBS checks as well as on-line safeguarding training.

Photo & Video Consent

We would like to take photos and videos of the event.

We will not take photos or videos of children who do not have consent and these pupils will not be excluded from participating fully in the event.

Please identify these pupils to a member of our staff as soon as you arrive at the event.

Please complete the photo consent form on behalf of your group and return to your hub event leader.

Risk Assessments

Schools are responsible for preparing their own risk assessment.

We have a risk assessment for the event which is available for schools to use, however, it doesn’t cover getting children to and from the event.

Some of our venues have limited toilet facilities. To reduce waiting time and overcrowding in the toilet area we will sometimes encourage you to take children to the toilet throughout the workshop as required. Our hub lead will notify you of arrangements for the day.

Drinks and Snacks

We will have at least one short break during our events. Please ask children to bring water to drink and a snack if required. Please encourage children to bring a snack that is easy to eat in your designated seating areas.


Children should come to our events in normal school uniform.

Teachers’ refreshments

In most of our venues we will arrange tea/coffee for teachers and adult helpers on a self-serve basis. This is usually a kitchen area where you can help yourself throughout the workshop. It would be helpful if you are able to bring your own thermal, covered mug to use.
