This year, Music Mark traveled up and down the country to consult its membership on the National Plan for Music Education (NPME) and its future. From heads of Music Services/Hubs, their partners to peripatetic and classroom teaching staff, Music Mark has collated their insight and suggestions to inform its conversations with the Department of Education regarding a continued NPME beyond March 2020. Established in 2011, the policy is England’s first National Plan for Music Education. However, its future is now in doubt as government funding for the policy comes to an end in less than two years time.
