Impact of Music Therapy in Mainstream Primary Schools

In educational settings, our specialist music therapy involvement is used for addressing EHCP outcomes, meeting new SEND reform guidelines. assessing child/student’s development through a non-verbal intervention and assisting with wider OFSTED requirements for personalised programmes of study.

Below is an example of the impact of our work supporting children and young people.

A Catholic Primary School in Oxfordshire

A small group of children were referred for a variety of reasons including social/emotional, wellbeing, speech and language delay, memory and recall problems and low confidence. 71% of the pupils achieved their therapeutic aims over the six week trial period and 29% had continuing aims.

In order to monitor detailed progress in sessions, the Music Therapy star (below) was completed by the Music Therapist for each pupil at the start and also the end of the 6 week period. The average outcome readings for all pupils accessing Music Therapy show an improvement in all areas.
