Musical School - fully funded for Cornish Schools

Dear Colleagues

I know you will all be busy with the new term but I wanted to make you aware of a great opportunity for your school. The Cornwall Music Education Hub has teamed with Charanga to jointly fully fund Music School licences for all LA/former LA primary schools in Cornwall until 1st October 2022 (usually £295 plus VAT per school).

We have partnered with the Cornwall Music Service Trust to roll out this programme as they have already been working with Charanga and have a great deal of experience in using Musical School. We will be offering a number of free online training sessions over the next few months to help all staff in schools, both music specialists and non-specialists, make the most of the resources available.

What is Charanga Musical School?

Charanga Musical School is a living cloud-based resource that brings together great music, modern pedagogy and the latest educational technology. It supports all aspects of music in school, including the music curriculum and whole-class instrumental learning, as well as providing children and their families with opportunities to continue learning and engaging with music at home. Music School provides access to a complete music scheme for the National Curriculum, including the new adapted scheme, and other resources to support blended learning.

Recommended by over 110 Music Hubs and used in over 13,000 schools, Musical School is ideal for specialists and non-specialist teachers alike. With lesson plans, assessments and inspiring whiteboard resources for every lesson, it supports all the requirements of the curriculum and is absolutely in line with guidance published by Ofsted.

The resource can also be used beyond music teaching: you can find music – both contemporary and classic – for assemblies or carpet time. Teachers and support staff may also like to use some of the games included for activities during rainy play times. Full scripts and music for your next Christmas play are also included. The possibilities really are endless! We hope you enjoy it.

How do I access the free licence?

To obtain a licence for your school simply visit www.cornwall.charanga.com or click here. Any school who has already purchased a licence will not lose out as they will have the remainder of their licence term added on after 1st October 2022.

We hope that you are excited by this fantastic opportunity. I strongly encourage all schools to take up the offer which will only be available for this period.
