1 - Welcoming
We are an inclusive Service that welcomes everybody.
2 - Safeguarding
All TMS tutors have enhanced DBS certificates. TMS tutors have to undertake mandatory safeguarding training through Thurrock Council and have regular CPD sessions on Child Protection. All staff are appraised of annual DfE guidance on Safeguarding.
3 - Local
Thurrock Music Services is based in Purfleet and therefore well placed to respond to local needs. We currently provide music lessons to over 90% of Thurrock schools.
4 - Experienced
Established in 1998 Thurrock Music Services has been providing music education to the young people of Thurrock for over 2 decades. TMS has a highly skilled worked force that continually develops their skills and knowledge through regular CPD sessions. Several students who learnt through the Service have returned after university and joined the pool of tutors.
5 - 'Not for profit
Our focus is on education, not making money for the business. All income is reinvested into education provision for our local communities.
