National Music Plan and Music Edhubs

  1. 1. Telford & Wrekin Music Music Education Hubs & the National Plan for Music “ Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, and life to everything.” Plato
  2. 2. Government’s view of Music Education <ul><li>Department for Education Schools White Paper (2010) states that the coalition government believes that every child should experience a wide variety of high quality cultural experiences </li></ul><ul><li>Government’s response to the Henley Review of Music Education (February 2011) Music is an enriching and valuable academic subject. Research evidence shows that a quality music education can improve self-confidence, behaviour and social skills, as well as improve academic attainment in areas such as numeracy, literacy and language. </li></ul><ul><li>DCMS / DfE Henley Review of Cultural Education (April 2011) Government recognises the important contribution that our great cultural institutions make to the education and intends to support access to and appreciation of the arts and culture. Public funding should be used primarily to meet the government priorities of every child having a solid cultural education </li></ul>
  3. 3. National Plan for Music Education <ul><li>Both Departments will work with Arts Council England </li></ul><ul><li>and key stakeholders to develop a National Plan for </li></ul><ul><li>Music Education which will clearly set out the </li></ul><ul><li>aspiration for music education; the funding available </li></ul><ul><li>for the Spending Review period; the National Funding </li></ul><ul><li>Formula we will adopt to allocate Department for </li></ul><ul><li>Education funding to each area; and the mechanisms </li></ul><ul><li>we will adopt to distribute that funding and hold </li></ul><ul><li>organisations to account for their funding . </li></ul><ul><li>Government’s Response to the Henley Review, February 2011 </li></ul>
  4. 4. Plans for the future - summary <ul><li>Two consultative meetings took place in August. . </li></ul><ul><li>The Government intends to publish the Plan in the Autumn. </li></ul><ul><li>The current planning assumption is that Music Education Hubs will formally start in September 2012 and that funding will be made available to the current providers for the Summer term as a proportion of the funding settlement secured for 2012-13. </li></ul><ul><li>Funding allocations are expected to be announced at the same time as the Plan is published. </li></ul>
  5. 5. National Plan for Music Education <ul><li>There will be a National Plan for Music Education, together with ongoing funding; </li></ul><ul><li>The role of the National Plan will be to outline a set of aspirations rather than to provide a blueprint for local delivery; </li></ul><ul><li>As the landscape of Music Education is changing it is important to view the National Plan as the next stage in the journey and not as the final destination; </li></ul><ul><li>First access through schools, Whole class teaching, ideally for a year, minimum of one term </li></ul><ul><li>Every child to have the opportunity to play an instrument AND to sing </li></ul>
  6. 6. Progression routes
  7. 7. National Plan for Music First access: music education to all children through schools and whole class teaching programmes by music education hubs (Ages 5-14) Most children continue interest beyond classroom in & out of school: large/small groups; 1:1 tuition; ensembles (Ages 8-19) Some children show talent and receive specialist small group / 1:1 tuition / ensembles (Ages 8-19) A few are exceptionally talented & enter MDS / NYMO (Ages 8-19)
  8. 8. National Music Plan <ul><li>The will be an appendix within the Plan looking at ICT & Music within schools. </li></ul><ul><li>Music Services will need to form partnerships with schools, other providers and local cultural organisations to be able to deliver the National Plan for Music Education; </li></ul><ul><li>In order to bid for the funding Music Services will need to have firm plans to draw up local agreements/memorandum of understanding/ local hub governance; </li></ul><ul><li>Music Services must be able to articulate the locally agreed offer / targets and how they will be measured; </li></ul><ul><li>Within the bid Music Services will need to be able to articulate the additionally of the partnership (additional funds / more effective use of current funds/ additional services on offer). </li></ul>
  9. 9. Music Education Hubs <ul><ul><li>Music Education Hubs will be based on formal partnerships of organisations working strategically to ensure the best possible offer for children in their area </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Hubs’ provision will support, complement and enhance the experiences the child gains from their music curriculum in school; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Hubs will fulfil those functions that the school cannot fulfil alone; </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Music Education Hubs <ul><ul><li>By working in partnership with the schools, the Hubs will enable the child to experience a coherent music education in and out of school; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Hubs will ensure that inequalities in provision across the country are addressed and that every child has the opportunity to learn and instrument and to sing; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Hubs will ensure that quality music education does not become the preserve of those children whose families can afford to pay for tuition and ensemble opportunities. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A call for bids for the new Music Education Hubs will be made alongside the Plan or shortly afterwards and the process is expected to be run by a central fund holder. </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Funding for Music Education <ul><li>It is likely that funding will be based on Local Authority areas, pupil numbers with weighting for Free School Meals; </li></ul><ul><li>In order to ensure equitability, this grant will be distributed by Local Authority area . </li></ul><ul><li>Bids will need to be for one or more LA areas </li></ul><ul><li>DfE grant, Arts Council funds, Youth Music funding, Lottery funds, Local Authority funds, Schools own funds, Parents, Charities, Business, Individual philanthropy </li></ul>
  12. 12. Funding for Music Education <ul><li>Telford & Wrekin Music is looking for c.£1.25 million in </li></ul><ul><li>investment in music education over the next three years across </li></ul><ul><li>the authority . </li></ul><ul><li>Music Education Hub funding from DfE </li></ul><ul><li>Musical Bridges KS2/KS3 Transition – Paul Hamlyn Foundation </li></ul><ul><li>Sing Up Local Provider funding for CPD primary and secondary </li></ul><ul><li>Lottery funding for G&T and early years network & CPD </li></ul><ul><li>Arts Council England Catalyst and Artsmark funding </li></ul><ul><li>Local Authority </li></ul><ul><li>Parents </li></ul><ul><li>Schools and early years settings </li></ul><ul><li>Developing and supporting private and charitable giving </li></ul>

  15. 15. Telford & Wrekin Music Education Hub <ul><li>Why bother with a Music Education Hub ? </li></ul><ul><li>Where Music Education is delivered at its best, money from central </li></ul><ul><li>government and Local Authorities is harnessed together alongside </li></ul><ul><li>imaginative use of school budgets and exciting collaborations with </li></ul><ul><li>arts organisations. The best Music Education comes about through </li></ul><ul><li>partnership; no one teacher, performer, school, organisation, </li></ul><ul><li>group or body has all of the requisite skills to deliver every part of a </li></ul><ul><li>rounded Music Education to every child. Instead, when interested </li></ul><ul><li>parties work together, with funding invested carefully to deliver the </li></ul><ul><li>right level of expertise at the right moment in the education </li></ul><ul><li>process, we see strong results . </li></ul><ul><li>DfE Henley Review of Music Education 2011 </li></ul>
