Guidance for Governors

What can governors do to ensure that all pupils receive their musical entitlement?

1. Download the article Music in Mind by Jem Shuttleworth (general manager of Music Mark and school governor) to read a summary.


2. In April 2016, Music Mark, Arts Council England, and the National Governors' Association collaborated to publish two documents to help school governors put music at the heart of their schools. 

Cultural Education: a guide for governors provides guidance and questions that governors can make use of when supporting school leaders to provide cultural opportunities for all pupils.  

Music Education: a guide for governors provides structured questions looking at five areas of guidance: 

  • Values and Ethos;
  • Opportunities;
  • Resources;
  • Teaching;
  • Partnerships.

The document then highlights important resources such as the National Plan for Music Education, Music Mark's directory of music services, and Ofsted's professional development materials for music.
