CHOIR

Welcome to our Choir page

We’ve got two splendid choirs up and running this year and we’re looking forward to some exciting concerts and events.  All documents and resources are available through the link below.  And don’t forget to check out our videos from past concerts and events.  Our media statement is right at the bottom.  Please check back regularly for updates.

YEAR 3&4 CHOIR

The children were brilliant at the Grandparents’ Tea Party last term and did a wonderful job learning all those lyrics.  Please remember to email the school office, office@astwoodbank.worcs.sch.uk to update your media permissions.  Say you’d like to select YES in ScholarPack for the ‘external video’ option – this matches the media statement below.  Our next event will be an Easter concert, in school on Tuesday 14th March at 6pm.  Parents are invited and details will follow.

YEAR 5&6 CHOIR

The feedback from our concert at St John’s has been amazing.  The orchestra were very impressed with our performance and the conductor commented on our meticulous preparation and wonderful behaviour!  We are incredibly proud of what we achieved!  The video is now below!  Our next event is at the Palace Theatre in June and rehearsals for this will start around Easter.

Joining Choir - Statement

Upon joining choir for the first time, we ask for a specific media consent.  We take online safety very seriously; no child will be named in our videos and links will be posted on the choir page.  As a school we can’t guarantee how this material will be used once it is in the public domain.  If you have any questions or concerns about this issue please do ask.

We intend to have lots of fun with choir but do regard it as a serious commitment so please do reinforce this with your children.  Our choir members are often seen performing in public places and are always excellent ambassadors for the school.  Remember, the first port of call for information is always the choir page on the school website.

From May 2022, when ticking the permission box on ParentPay or authorising ‘external video’ in the Scholarpack permissions, you are agreeing to the following statement: My child would like to join the school choir and I am happy for video footage and photographs to be taken at concerts and events.  I am also happy for photos and video featuring my child to appear online, such as on YouTube, and also in local newspapers.  I will inform school if this situation changes.

If your child wants to join choir, but you are unable to give this media consent for whatever reason, please do come and talk to me and we may be able to make a separate provision.

Mr George
