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.
