Writing a Music Development Plan: Secondary and all-through

Explore how to articulate your music provision so that it focuses on inclusion, engagement and the quality of education a pupil receives during their time within your school.

This free, one-hour ISM Trust webinar is aimed at secondary and all-through school music leads.

This webinar is relevant to music leads from across the four nations of the UK. However, it refers to the recommendation in the English National Plan for Music Education (NPME) that every school in England (including multi-academy trusts) should have a Music Development Plan in place by September 2023, that 'captures the curricular and co-curricular offer and sets out how it will be staffed and funded'.
