  • 2b) Offer a pre-project meeting (online or phone call) to discuss the programme in more detail.
  • 2c) Providing in-school lessons for a class, focused on raising attainment in instrumental and music learning.
  • 2d) Offer the option of a “head start” activity as the first session, where the school works with Create Music to identify and support young people with additional needs through a smaller group session designed to introduce children to the instrument and learning and to also build their self-confidence and feelings of wellbeing.
  • 2e) Providing a CPD opportunity for the class teacher and adults through the planning and delivery of the instrument lessons.
  • 2f) Arranging for the instruments to be delivered if the school is hiring/borrowing them from the Hub and will collect them at the end of the programme.

  • 2j) Having the class teacher at the time supporting the lesson.
  • 2k) Letting Create Music know about the school behaviour system/policy.
  • 2l) Supplying Create Music with information in advance about any specific needs (behaviour/ SEND) within the class so the music teacher can more effectively include and teach all the children.





  • 4a) The school should let the music teacher know if there any dates the lessons cannot take place for example due to school events or trips so that Create Music can do their best to rearrange the lesson for you.


  • 5a) Should either party fail to deliver the commitments as set out in section 2, this could result in the termination of the partnership agreement and involvement in the programme.
