Music Service threat of closure

Please see below a letter from Chailey Secondary School regarding the possible closure of East Sussex Music Service:-

Dear Parents and Carers

You may be aware that ESCC has announced proposals to close East Sussex Music Service. We have until the 30th April to let our views be known, as on this date Councillor Standley will be asked to make the decision to close.

This is devastating news for us at Chailey School. We see music as a very important part of a broad and balanced curriculum and currently have 125, a fifth of the school population, benefiting from music lessons in school.

Please support us by writing to Councillor Standley. We attach a template letter for you to customise. There is also an online petition which can be signed.

Here is the link, which you can copy and paste in to a web browser. It only takes a couple of minutes of your time to register your support.

Many thanks for your help here. Let’s see if together we can reverse this proposal.

Best wishes

Helen Key
Head Teacher
