  • A shared understanding of core purpose and generic skills of music subject leaders;
  • Effective strategies to strengthen the delivery of music in primary schools;
  • Opportunities to consider how a school might organise opportunities to play musical instruments, sing, listen and appraise, compose, read and perform music in order to provide high quality music education as part of a broad and balanced curriculum;
  • Effective strategies to secure planning for progression and assessment in music;
  • An exploration and support in the delivery of the new National Curriculum for Music;
  • Led and delivered by a National College for School Leadership accredited facilitator and award-winning classroom practitioners.
