Gallions Primary School: Music Manager Required

Music Manager Required

We are excited to advertise this newly created role to take our music
provision to the next level.

Gallions Primary School is in the lowest 5 per cent of areas for
deprivation in the country. Despite this huge barrier, we are
determined that all the children that we teach will achieve just as
well as any other child in the country.

The curriculum we teach offers opportunities in Music, Dance, Drama
and Art wherever possible and a special feature of the school is our
rich music programme.

As part of the programme, every child (currently 570 children) from
the age of 3 has weekly musicianship lessons and every child from the
age of 6 learns to play a string instrument.

With our own orchestras, choirs and huge ambition, we now need someone
to help us take our music provision to the next level.

This role is full-time (39 weeks per year).

With an initial salary of £25,989.68 - £28,105.79.

E-mail us at for an application pack or
visit to the school.

This is a truly exciting opportunity in a truly exciting organisation.

Closing Date – Midday Friday 27th April 2012
