Public Liability Insurance - £10,000,000 cover with Aviva via the Musicians Union.*

Health & Safety Policy

Our music teachers, whether employed by a school, Music Service, Hub, privately or as a self employed person, take responsibility for their own health and safety while on the school's (or any other) premises and ensure that they comply with the school's Health & Safety procedures while they are on-site. However this does not negate the school or employer's responsibility to them under the Health & Safety at Work Act. The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 places overall responsibility for health and safety with the employer.
