MIDAS – Music Improvement, Development and Support – create a plan to assist in the support and delivery of music in school.
We want all young people in Essex to have the musical education and experience they deserve, so we strive to work with schools to share our musical knowledge and combine it with the expertise of school leaders, subject leaders and teachers.
Our role is a supportive one. School leadership, curriculum staff in schools and Essex Music Education Hub will work together, with the aim of providing the best music education possible for the children and young people across the county of Essex.
For schools to engage the support of Essex Music Education Hub in carrying out this self-evaluation work, see our suggested format and timeline for the visit.
Recommendations will be agreed with the school and documentation relating to the support visit will remain strictly confidential between the school and Essex Music Education Hub.
Essex Music Education Hub will then develop a plan to meet your support and development needs, based on the recommendations, which will be shared and discussed with the school. The purpose of this plan will be to fill any gaps which have been jointly identified and to support any agreed areas for development.
Essex Music Education Hub will continue to work with your school to support your musical development programme through our CPD and curriculum work. If you would like further support, MIDAS+ is available at a nominal cost to the school. This will provide further guidance and review during the next academic year support to monitor how things are progressing against the agreed plan.
