A draft policy is being circulated and amended and an updated version will appear on our new Music at Sciennes website. Meanwhile, please refer to Sciennes Policies. A Music Improvement Group has been set up which will meet throughout 2014-2015, tasked with raising awareness of our existing Music provision and also exploring ways to expand upon it. Our new blog will be a vehicle for communicating aspects of our Music provision.
We greatly appreciate the support we have already received from Instrument Tuition Specialists Dr Robert Fraser and Rob Ironside, as well as assistance from City of Edinburgh’s Principal Officer Instrumental Music, Mike McGeary, and Deirdre O’Brien, Head of Faculty for Expressive Arts at James Gillespie’s High School. We also benefit from ongoing parental feedback via our Parent Council, particularly in ensuring our procedures for offering the limited City of Edinburgh provision of free Instrument Tuition to some of our pupils can be clearly understood by all our families.
We also look forward to communicating and celebrating the fantastic achievements of all our young musicians at Sciennes.
