How we can support schools

Swindon Music Service has developed guidance to help schools see how music can support they Artsmark planning and how to use the Artsmark process to improve, increase or develop their music provision.

Music is a mandatory part of the curriculum for key stage 1 to 3 and an optional GCSE/A level subject at key stage 4 & 5.

Our guidance was created using the headings within the Artsmark Self Assessment Tool: Leadership, Curriculum design, CPD, Pupils Engagement, rage of Offer, Partnerships, Equality & Diversity and values and ethos.

At Swindon Music Service, we advocate for music in schools to government and other stakeholders, to ensure music is a prominent, respected and valued subject in school.


Guidance Document will be published soon.
