My name is Mrs Barron and I lead Music across the partnership. From being small, I have been surrounded by music and was encouraged to learn music myself as I grew up and loved learning to play the organ and the baritone horn as well as singing in the school choir. I believe that studying cultural education subjects, such as art and design, dance, drama and music, sparks creativity across the curriculum, encouraging young people to be inquisitive, disciplined and determined. Wherever children start in life, a high quality cultural education in every school should be a right, not a privilege. Music education is also important because it will give students a way to connect with other people. Children are naturally very social, and it’s important to encourage them to build relationships by providing them experiences to share with each other . I lead extracurricular choirs at both schools and the joy the children express when they are singing together is truly heart-warming. I am so excited to be part of a team where we all believe in celebrating the knowledge, skills, and passions of all children to promote inclusion and individuality.
