When staff miss a lesson due to illness or travel delay they will do their best to make the session up (e.g. through an extra lesson or a double lesson). When a school cancels a lesson we will endeavour to make up the lesson provided that a minimum of 48 hours notice has been received from the school. In the event of an emergency or closure of a school (full or partial) or music centre due to an event outside Maestros control (eg a pandemic, flooding, heavy snow or industrial action) sessions will not be made up or credited. Please note that teachers are contracted to teach a total of 33 lessons over the academic year and have 39 weeks in which to deliver these lessons, leaving 6 additional weeks to make up any lessons that are missed through their absence.
