Online Lessons Safeguarding Policy

Online Lesson Safeguarding Policy


Safeguarding when providing online music lessons



Safeguarding remains as important when teaching online as when teaching at the sessions. Tutors should familiarise themselves with The Rock Project Child Protection Policy before commencing the new method of teaching online. The points below are to be used in addition to our Child Protection Policy, not instead of.


Working via Zoom or any other online audio-visual applications does raise some additional safeguarding issues to consider.


Safeguarding rules for Rock Project Franchisee:

  • Get the agreement of the parents or guardians for teaching online in writing.

  • Use parent or guardian’s own account rather than a child’s to deliver lessons to.

  • Set out a clear policy in writing. Tell people that your Zoom / Skype account will be used exclusively for the purpose of lessons and only during music lessons.

  • Do not record any lesson under any circumstance.



Safeguarding rules for the tutor:

  • Use a specific Zoom (or equivalent) account for online teaching. Keep it separate from any personal profile. Make sure that you select an appropriate image for your profile picture and do not share ANYpersonal information eg. Phone number, email address, or any social media profiles.

  • Test your set up before going live. 

    • Check that the camera/mic is working properly 

    • Ensure the camera position is optimum for teaching

    • Ensure that you are against a neutral background for teaching

  • Be professional when delivering the lessons. Always present yourself as you would at the regular sessions. 

  • Polo shirts and lanyards are to be worn at all times.

  • The student must take lessons in a room with an open door and a parent/guardian should be in the same premises whilst the lesson takes place.

  • Do not record any lesson under any circumstance.
