Safeguarding – Keeping children safe in music learning

Warwick Music Limited (“Warwick Music”) takes its commitment to safeguarding and child protection very seriously. As teachers and parents ourselves, we understand the responsibility of everyone in the role in safeguarding children across the UK.

Every teacher who works for us is professionally qualified to teach music, has a current DBS check which has been independently verified, and has undergone updated safeguarding training. The Company uses Jeremy Dibb, former Head of Warwickshire Music Service, as our independent safeguarding advisor.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Steven Greenall and he can be contacted via email or by calling 024 7671 2081. Parents, guardians and students can contact him to raise any concerns or issues you may have.
