The Music Partnership has developed a regional Singing Strategy to ensure that every pupil sings regularly, and that choirs and other vocal ensembles are available in the area.

Our Singing Strategy is an outline of guidance and support for schools and music teachers.  We intend to support the delivery of these objectives by focusing on providing excellent Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities and developing quality performance opportunities for the young people in our region.

Strategic Guidance

  • Advocate for the importance and benefits of singing across all age groups.
  • Develop strategies to engage with hub schools and settings to implement the singing strategy.
  • Ensure young people participate in quality singing and vocal activities within and outside of school.
  • Support schools to improve their offer and delivery.


  • To provide and promote quality, inclusive teaching for whole classes, small groups and individuals.
  • To provide strategies and resources (including technology) for the development of all voice types and needs.
  • To ensure progression routes are available.
  • To develop singing and vocal activity within ensemble provision.


  • Provide focussed CPD to improve the quality of singing teaching and leadership in and out of schools
  • Signpost schools to relevant regional and national organisations that provide guidance, support and further opportunity
  • Develop young singing leaders
  • Build skills, capacity and expertise for delivery of the Singing Strategy


  • Ensure opportunities are available to both see and participate in quality performance.
  • Promote engagement for the Singing Strategy within the wider community.
