Vocal Strategy

Singing SKY (Sefton and Knowsley)

Our aim by 2020 is to have regular, high quality singing embedded into the life of every school in Sefton and Knowsley, both within the curriculum and in extra-curricular activities. Progression routes will be available at local, authority and sub-regional levels for those children and young people who wish to develop their singing further.

To achieve this, a 5 year plan is in place to systematically roll-out key singing projects across both areas. These projects have been devised in consultation with key stakeholders (schools) and external experts, and have been tailored to the requirements of each area.

The main focus areas for the 5 year plan are:

  • Sharing Practice
  • Continued Professional Development (CPD)
  • Performance
  • Quality Assurance
  • Ongoing Consultation / Needs Analysis

Projects for schools currently available include: Singing Playgrounds, Singing SKY Outreach, Singing Masterclasses, Find My Voice and Vocal Leadership Courses. Voice ensembles for pupils are Sefton Voices and Knowsley Singers. Further details are available in the pack delivered to all schools, or from the music hub office.
