Reception to Year 2
The Springers department is running with small classes so that social distancing can be maintained.
Micro- and Mini-Springers will pay the mini-membership fee of £30 per half-term.
Year 2 Springers sessions include recorder to limit room changes. Please ensure that you have a recorder as instrument sharing will not be possible. We recommend Aulos yellow-bag recorders (available at a 10% discount from Strings of Penn.) The normal membership fee of £40 per half-term applies. Year 2 Springers who play an orchestral instrument may also apply to join another ensemble (see below.)

The gaps between sessions are likely to be longer than usual to allow for cleaning. To comply with the requirements, parents and students will be unable to wait inside between sessions. No tuck-shop facility will be available. CMA will be as friendly as ever though, and a staff mamber will be on hand to welcome you and help with any enquiries.
All the income received from membership fees is used to run the programme. We hope if possible to offer members 2 groups where desired. The planned return to activities will be reviewed every half-term as we continue to respond to changing guidelines. We hope to slowly return to normal through this flexible approach.
No lessons will be taking place on site due to COVID restrictions. Our teachers are giving lessons online. Please note that their term dates may differ from CMA during this period.
