Music Education Hubs in England are a resource to help support all schools in their local area. The Tri-borough Music Hub aims to have an active and positive relationship with every school in the three Local Authorities.
Music Education Hubs have been tasked with ensuring that all schools have a School Music Education Plan (SMEP). In essence this is focused on schools identifying how they deliver music in their curriculum and how they engage a range of additional support to help realise their school vision.
A School Music Education Plan should not be complicated but needs to indicate that schools are delivering a Music Curriculum and ensuring that pupils have the opportunity to learn to play an instrument, sing regularly, to perform and hear live music, and to work with professional musicians.
In order to support schools, the TBMH has produced this guidance which outlines the revised Education Inspection Framework from Ofsted; a suggestion for generating a simple school music policy; and a self-evaluation framework for music provision.
It is recommended that all schools use this guidance to feed into their own school development plan. This can be discussed with TBMH colleagues and could be used to determine future priorities. It will also provide valuable information to the TBMH who can then provide support as appropriate.
