PRIMARY-SPECIFIC OFFERS Thurrock Music Services Project Name Sing Healthily CPD About the Project Thurrock Music Services (TMS) currently work with over 90% of schools in Thurrock, as an Arts Council England funded music hub. This year they have produced offers for Thurrock schools, ranging from teacher consultation and Music curriculum support, to CPD and workshops for students. Marilyn Whiskerd is a classically trained musician and experienced Headteacher working in Thurrock for over twenty years. As School Engagement Lead with TMS Marilyn has already had a significant impact on singing standards within the borough. In partnership with TMS and the Royal Opera House, she was instrumental in leading school choirs in the 2016/17 Thurrock Music Festivals. She has been a driving force in developing a Singing Strategy for Thurrock. Marilyn has proven track record of delivering engaging, creative and practical workshops for pupils; as well as in high quality CPD for staff. This CPD supports the vision of Thurrock’s Singing Strategy to develop a love of singing in every child in Thurrock “to access high quality, engaging singing activities that enthuse, inspire and motivate learners towards pursuing pathways of progression; enabling high level skills for some whilst nurturing social, moral, cultural and spiritual well-being for all”. TMS are offering this CPD to teachers to ensure that they are equipped with the skills, knowledge and confidence that will enable learners to access high quality teaching and learning in singing lessons and extra-curricular singing activities.
