Whole Class Ensemble Teaching

The government’s National Plan for Music Education states that every child should have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument through whole class ensemble teaching (WCET). It is the responsibility of each school to ensure that this is possible for their pupils.

National Curriculum WCET

Suffolk County Music Service's curriculum overview document was developed by the Music Service's Curriculum Leadership Team. It is framed within the context of the National Curriculum for Music and its associated Programmes of Study (PoS).

All schools engaged in delivering programmes of WCET in partnership with the Music Service will receive a music curriculum document demonstrating how the Music Service's PoS maps against the National Curriculum Music PoS.
