Thanks for having us, Nook Lane!
Our 2012 – 14 research project, Amazing Music Technology considered and tested ways of using mainstream, specialist and assistive technology to enable young people with SEND to make music.
We now use and share what we learned in our research through a new SEND project taking place in special schools across West and South Yorkshire and, as we’ve just finished a set of sessions in one of our schools, we thought we’d say thank you for having us! Here are a few photos from the fantastic sessions taking place:
Nook Lane Junior School is a community, co-educational school catering for children in the 7+ to 10+ range.
They are a warm and welcoming school that serves the Stannington area and the wider Sheffield community, incorporating a 12 place Integrated Resource for children with Language / Autistic Spectrum / Communication Difficulties.
The lead musician for our Musical Journeys SEND project is Andrew Cleaton, who continues to work on the programme in other schools across West and South Yorkshire.
If you’d like more information about our work in SEND settings, or would specifically like to find out more about the project, please contact us – we’re happy to chat!
