The Singing Strategy aim for 2019-20 will build on the singing experiences of previous years of leading on the Strategy.

We aim to enable both teachers and pupils to progress in their use of singing within schools and offer opportunities otherwise unavailable for schools, teachers and pupils.

“Singing can improve pupils’ learning, confidence, health and social development.It has the power to change lives and build stronger communities. This is why we are asking hubs to develop singing strategies, in and beyond schools, to ensure that every child sings regularly and that choirs are available. Such strategies will widen singing opportunities for all pupils, drive up quality and give routes for progression such as access to chorister programmes, area/county choirs and the National Youth Choir.” -National Plan for Music, DFE

Each Music Hub across the country has written a Singing Strategy to enable the guidance published in the National Plan for Music to be implemented. Somerset Music is the Lead Partner for the Singing Strategy for Somerset on behalf of Sound Foundation Somerset, working in partnership with Jackdaws.
