As part of the Our Orchestra project, we've been working with schools to develop a framework intended to help them hold external music providers / partners to account.
In Ofstead's "Music in Schools: Wider Still, and Wider" it is stated that "not enough school leaders and managers were holding external partners to account". In our experience working within special schools in the South West of England we have found this to be true, often arriving to deliver workshops and then being "left to it", unsupervised and so unscrutinised.
We asked teachers at the three special education centers we are working within on the Our Orchestra project to put together an easy to use framework to encourage them to hold us, and other external providers, to account. They have just delivered the first draft to us and we are putting it out there in the hope of attracting some constructive criticism from people.
If you fancy having a quick look over the document (attached) that would be very much appreciated.
