We will be running Music CPD sessions this term aimed towards developing skills and knowledge for non-specialist teachers of music in KS1 and KS2. We have initially focussed on 3 areas within the music curriculum and have worked hard to ensure that the sessions are accessible to teachers at any level of musical experience/confidence.
These sessions are free and open to any staff who may benefit from them and we invite you to share this opportunity amongst the staff within each school setting.
