Music Mark Membership
Selly Park Technology College for Girls and Music Mark Membership - Recognising commitment to Music Education
Services for Education (or Birmingham Music Service), in association with Music Mark (the UK Association for Music Education) has offered Selly Park Technology College for Girls, membership of Music Mark for 2016-2017.
Music Mark membership is a nationally recognised benchmark nominated to schools that recognise the value of music education as part of a broad, balanced and relevant school curriculum. The school receives a welcome pack including a logo and certificate confirming its status as a recognised Music Mark School.
Schools can only gain Music Mark membership through recommendation from the Music Service.
In 2016-17, the eligibility criteria for securing Music Mark membership in Birmingham has been kept to two simple components. These are that the school:
• engages with the Music Service to provide in-school instrumental progression routes for students
• has worked with the Birmingham Music Education Partnership on one or more of the core roles of Music Hubs outlined in the National Plan for Music Education. These core roles include, whole class instrumental teaching, ensembles opportunities, progression routes, singing strategies, CPD for school based music staff, provision of musical instruments and engagement with large scale performance opportunities.
Through an active partnership with the music department and ongoing data collection from instrumental teachers, the Music Service has determined that our school has met these criteria. During 2016 -17, Selly Park Technology College has:
Ordered Music Service provision to offer instrumental / vocal progression routes
Worked with the BMEP on one or more of the core roles
Supported singing through Music Service provision
In conclusion, Birmingham Music Service nominated the school to receive this award because of; its high level of engagement with the music service, the vision of the SLT, clear commitment to music in the curriculum, the expertise of the Head of Department and the musical groups that add strength to the work at Selly Park.
