School Improvement & Development Conference 2023: Book your early-bird place

Raising Attainment in Primary Music

Research has linked music education to improvements in working memory, language acquisition, spelling, concentration, effort, behaviour and wellbeing. But it is also an important subject in its own right, and it develops children’s “cultural capital”. Our INSET days are available in-school, via livestream, or delivered with a blend of an on-demand recorded training course (of your choice) followed by time with our consultant in person or via a live link.

  • Improve teaching and learning in music irrespective of your teachers' own confidence
  • Develop “cultural capital”
  • Use music to inform and improve learning in other subjects

About this INSET

Music is a fertile ground for developing evaluation skills, self-discipline, resilience and SMSC; but it is also a vital foundation subject in its own right. However, it can sometimes be pushed down the curriculum “pecking order” because of other commitments, and a lack of teacher confidence. This INSET day will:

  • Explore how to structure your curriculum to meet – and exceed – the requirements of Ofsted’s new Inspection Framework
  • Provide you with a range of practical activities
  • Consider the use of music to improve wellbeing, behaviour and attitudes to learning
  • Enable your school to continue its journey towards excellence.


This course is appropriate for primary schools.

  • Primary teachers (all years)
  • Music / curriculum leaders
  • Senior leaders
