Special Schools and PRUs
Encore Music Service supports music provision in Special Schools and PRUs through a range of options that can be delivered throughout the academic year or on a half-yearly, termly or half-termly basis.
Options include individual tuition across a range of instruments including ukulele, guitar, drums, keyboard and vocals. Group and whole class projects are tailored to the needs of the children and young people. Music is used as a tool to develop communication skills, self-esteem, concentration and teamwork. Typically, lessons in primary settings focus on percussion, body movement, games as well as regular opportunities for singing. Options for older KS2 and KS3 - KS5 students include DJing, rap, African drumming, samba, junk percussion and rock/pop ‘band’ projects which combine instrumental skills with song writing and recording. Charanga’s SEND online resources (see below) are available to support music provision delivered by school staff.

SEN/D resources - mainstream and special schools
Within its ‘Musical School’ resource, Charanga has an award-winning SEND/ASL section designed for pupils in mainstream primary and special schools.
At the heart of the Charanga SEND/ASL section is a Scheme of Work called ‘Anyone Can Play’ which was developed by the Music Unlimited team over several years of working in SEND/ASL settings. Charanga has adapted the Scheme into a simple-to-use digital programme with important new features while preserving the tried and tested core methodology.
