Music Network

 The aim of the Music Network is to host and facilitate regular meetings that will give primary music co-ordinators and teachers the opportunity to take part in free music CPD; offer support in delivering high-quality curriculum music and develop a strong network that will lead to the sharing of good practice across schools.

Representatives from the BEP and Services for Education will also be present to share upcoming events and resources accessible to schools. Sessions will include support in delivering whole-school signing, assessment of music in primary schools and supporting non-music specialist teachers in your school. Further information to follow in the Autumn Term.
