We are closely monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus and assessing its impact on our ability to provide lessons to our students. As this is a developing situation, we will continue to assess the most up to date advice from www.hse.ie.
Based on the information and advice available we are going ahead with our lessons as planned. We will publish further updates on our website and if we have to cancel lessons, we will inform affected students.

County Wexford School of Music (CWSM) is aware that serious charges have been brought against a former teacher. CWSM wishes to confirm that the former teacher ceased teaching at CWSM shortly before CWSM was formally notified of any allegations made against him. CWSM has cooperated fully with the relevant authorities in relation to their investigations into the former teacher and will continue to do so, should this be required.
The management and Board of Directors wish to confirm that CWSM has a full and robust Child Protection Policy in place. This policy has been in place for many years and follows and invokes best recommended practice and guidelines (as recommended by “Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children 2011” published by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs) and will continue to do so into the future.
