Whole School Improvement – The Impact of Music
This workshop is for Primary and secondary school SENCOs, Inclusion Leaders, Music Leaders, Teachers and TAs.
In this workshop we will demonstrate the positive impact music has on every member of the school community. We will see how music can be woven into each subject to improve academic achievement, teaching, pupil/staff/parent/carer/governor relationships and pupil & staff wellbeing. Drawing on Sue Hallam’s research document “The Power of Music” participants will leave with numerous musical ideas to try in their school and also scientific proof that music can help every aspect of school life reach the next level.
