Schools Music Service
The Schools’ Music Service (SMS) enriches and enhances the lives of children and the community of the East Riding by actively supporting and developing education through music. Building on our reputation for excellence, we will harness local and national partnerships to provide every child with sustainable and inclusive pathways to access great music. The SMS manages the provision of both the small group and whole class peripatetic instrumental music tuition within schools. The SMS provides opportunities for children and young people to play with enjoyment in workshops and ensembles. The SMS provides the opportunity for all children to experience live music performances.
The service provides administrative and advisory support for schools on all aspects of school admission appeals. All services provided will comply with the requirements of legislation, the statutory codes and other guidance issued by the Department for Education.
A service agreement is not required for schools maintained by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council as this service is already provided for those schools.
Data Protection Training and Support Services
All schools and academies have to meet strict duties in relation to the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). The Data Protection and Feedback Team which operates within Legal and Democratic Services, based in County Hall, Beverley is ideally placed to assist schools and academies across the East Riding. This is due to its experience in working with schools and academies and its responsibility for ensuring the Council’s compliance with recent changes to data protection laws which came into force in 2018. The team can support schools and academies in meeting these duties and in particular, can provide:
• Support for policy and guidance development for schools and academies, including templates and other resources.
• Access to staff
• Advice on dealing with Subject Access Requests.
• Supporting the investigation of data protection breaches including when dealing with the ICO.
• Advice and support on handling, storing, sharing and the disposing of personal and sensitive data.
• Advice on sharing information.
• Guidance on data protection compliance issues, including regular updates
• Additional face to face training can be purchased within the SLA.
