The information in this overview has been extracted from the Model Music Curriculum: Key Stages 1 to 3, released in March 2021. It also provides some further information which is intended to support schools in curating a relevant and effective music education curriculum that best serves the needs of their pupils and school community. In addition, schools should refer to Ofsted’s detailed ‘Research review series: music’ (published 12th July 2021) for further depth to curriculum planning. This overview aims to help music leaders in Hammersmith & Fulham; Kensington & Chelsea; and Westminster to easily see the musical progression outlined in the MMC and how linking with the Tri-borough Music Hub may help support in-school music education delivery. With thanks to Sutton Music Service for their support with this document.
