School Music Survey

As a condition of our DfE grant funding, Wandsworth Music are required to submit annual data about music provision and school engagement in Wandsworth.

We encourage all schools to complete the short school music provision and self-evaluation audit.

By completing the survey you will help us to both understand the music provision in your school, and enable us plan how to best support all schools in the future. In addition your answers will auto-populate a draft School Music Development Plan which will help you to:

  • Benchmark your school against DfE expectations
  • Understand what excellent music provision looks like
  • Decide on any actions for your school
  • Create a record for passing on to a new music lead
  • Complete the data for the annual DfE survey
  • Provide evidence for an Arts and Culture endorsement, Ofsted Deep Dive and Artsmark.
