Singing: Primary phase

Singing  Hub Schools are an essential element of the Nottinghamshire Music Hub's vocal strategy. We are committed  to developing a singing strategy to ensure that every pupil sings regularly and that choirs and other vocal ensembles are available in the area.

Our vision is for a Singing Hub School in each of the 7 districts of Nottinghamshire. We hope to link schools together leading to joint choirs, musicals and  other shared performances providing progressive singing opportunities for all within their locality.

We select schools with a proven track record of singing in school and that can provide the capacity to host events and support other schools. We look for schools with vocal groups  which are popular with boys and girls, and that can demonstrate that singing is at the heart of school life.

What they do;

* Assist other primary schools in creating and implementing their own singing strategies;

* Host an annual twilight CPD event for the primary schools in their district;

* Facilitate one transition project within a family of schools

* Provide mentoring support to the primary schools ion their area
