Living Song, in partnership with the Newham Academy of Music and Newham VIth Form College has now launched the new Yr 9 /10 Song writing programme being offered to Newham secondary schools. The project also offers informal CPD for music teachers and is fully in line with the new OFSTED Section 5 references to literacy (used appropriately to support musical learning, spiritual, moral, social and cultural education), recognising the importance of music’s contribution to this aspect of a school’s overall effectiveness.
