RETURNING TO IN-PERSON TEACHING IN MERTON SCHOOLS


UPDATE – January 2021 – All Lessons and Music Centre activities will temporarily be moved online during this period of school closure. Lessons and ensembles will be transitioned back in-person as soon as it is possible to do so.

The document below now acts as a reference as to which lessons we expect to resume in person once schools re-open.

Please note: This is a LIVE document and will be updated regularly, so please check back.

Please scroll down to find your child’s school and check its usual in-person music teaching status.

Due to social distancing restrictions, in-person lesson spaces will be limited. All teaching days/arrangements are subject to change. If you are unsure, please check with your MMF tutor in the first instance or contact us: 020 8640 5446 / admin@mmf.org.uk
