SEND music coverage (EADT)

A three-year project has begun to improve music provision for special needs pupils in Essex. Essex Music Education Hub, led by Essex County Council’s Essex Music Services, is running the programme with the help of a £178,968 grant from Youth Music.

The project aims to develop teachers’ skills at special schools and create more opportuni-lies for young people.

Ray Gooding, county councillor for education, said: “We are always looking at ways to help improve pupils’ access to music and are excited to have a positive influence on pupils with special educational needs.”
