Safeguarding for online rehearsal sessions 


  1. The rehearsal session must be started with/by the parent/guardian or a designated responsible adult and should be ended by them (as an acknowledgment of the video call taking place).  

  2. The responsible adult is present throughout to supervise the child or young person; if not in the room, then able to view the room through an open door.  

  3. Rehearsals must take place in a suitable area of the home in a shared space (e.g. kitchen, sitting room) and not in a private space (i.e. a bedroom) with the door open throughout, and appropriate clothing must be worn (i.e. as would be worn at school, or equivalent) . Students cannot wear headphones as the video stream must be audible to the responsible adult. 

  4. Rehearsal sessions must not be recorded by the parent/students and will not recorded by NEDMC,

  5. Any breach of the above or students not behaving in an orderly fashion will result in immediate cessation of all future sessions.
