As part of its policy of being inclusive for families in difficulty the Director or Choir Secretary are happy to discuss, in confidence ways that the choir can help with these costs and  financial help for trips and events.



There are a few rules:
Weekly attendance is expected with a punctual start. 
Notification of absence are requested. 
Good behaviour is expected at rehearsals.

What are the benefits:
Development of singing voices and the camaraderie of singing with others. 
Raising self-esteem and confidence
Making new friends and a sense of belonging to the community.

The choir is run by a management committee of youths and CRB checked adults. 
We also have procedures in place to deal with all reasonable eventualities.
 
We have junior and senior first aiders and pastoral officers on hand at every rehearsal. 
In the event of a late pick-up of your child, we will make sure they are safe until such time as you arrive. Please keep us informed if this is the case. Children under 11 years of age must be accompanied home from rehearsals unless written instructions are provided. Nobody is allowed to attend any rehearsals without being a registered member of the choir.
