How do you achieve the Music Mark?

To achieve the Music Mark, we provided evidence of curriculum development, professional development of staff and the opportunities we provide for our children in school.


Shropshire Music Service have been delivering on-site weekly ocarina and ukulele sessions to all pupils in KS1. 



As in previous years later in the Summer Term, we have invited the amazing Key Strings Musical Education in for a day.


Their live musical performances offer your pupils an immersive experience of music that has been designed by professional musicians and teachers to perfectly enhance and complement our existing musical education.
