This workshop explored the key aspects of creating a bespoke music curriculum for schools. It encouraged using the schools context to build music provision to excite and engage your pupils on their journey through the music National Curriculum whilst exploring resources to support planning and implementation. The session also looked at how to check the success of the bespoke music curriculum and how to build it with a collaborative approach, incorporating performance opportunities for meaningful musical outcomes.  

The session was delivered by Kate Howen, Lecturer in Primary Education.
