Our members and supporters will naturally be interested to know what the Prime Minister’s announcement today will mean to NMPAT. Sadly, at the moment it is too soon to be certain. As schools will be open to all pupils from 8th March, we hope that our staff will be returning to face-to-face teaching. However, we await confirmation that visiting teachers are permitted to restart work in schools.
Individual teaching out of school, and rehearsals of County Groups are governed by guidance for Out of School settings which have not yet been updated in the light of the recent announcement. We remain committed to restarting activities as soon as it is safe and permissible to do so.
We hope that both of these questions will be answered very shortly.
In the meantime, our county rehearsals will continue on-line with their amended timetable and we will be delivering lessons on-line where it is possible. The NMPAT Virtual Centre is meeting on Saturdays and welcomes any new members or visitors who may like to join us. To register for the Spring Term as a new students please visit use the online form.
Thank you to everyone who has expressed sorrow and support at the loss of our colleague Jon Lloyd. The warmth of feeling towards Jon and his work for NMPAT has been a great support at this very difficult time.
Peter Smalley, Chief Executive
