Safeguarding of Children and Young People At York Music Centre


As York Music Centre operates out of normal school hours, the building is regarded as an ‘open’ site as it is also used by other members of the public. During these times, normal school security does not operate, and our safeguarding policies are designed to address this challenge. 

We would like to clarify and formalise the process of signing children in and out of sessions as follows:

  1. Parents/carers must sign their child(ren) in and out of each session (ensemble or tuition) or formally grant permission for their child to sign themselves in/out of session(s). 
  2. When ‘in session’ responsibility for the child rests with the tutor. When moving from one session to another or at break time etc. responsibility for the child rests with the parent/carer (even if the child has been granted permission to sign themselves out of the session).
  3. Parents must collect their child PROMPTLY from the end of the session (unless the child has been granted permission to sign themselves out)
  4. Parents must notify YAE if there are any extenuating circumstances of which we need to be aware (e.g. child is not to have contact with a specific family member)
  5. At break times or in between sessions, parents and students must congregate in the Dining Hall (or designated common room) and not wander or congregate around the school building. 
  6. Parents have a responsibility to inform YAE (email support@yorkartseducation.org.uk) about any changes to medical details, photo permissions or contact details.
I give permission for my child to sign themselves in and out of sessions at York Music Centre:*
I understand that during break times or in between sessions that I am responsible for my child.*
