In additional to the use of pupil premium funding, in each area there are bursaries or financial support which your pupils can access to enable them to be able to play an instrument or sing.

The Music Partnership believes that a quality music education is for everyone and that all children should have an equitable entitlement to quality provision.  Across the partnership a range of programmes and support offers are available, and these are highlighted below, in addition to links to each Music Service. A full copy of the remissions policy can also be found in the footer of this website.  TMP is further committed to finding support for any young person, even if all of the options listed are not applicable.  Please contact us to discuss further.
