Specialist SEND Provision

Inclusive music for children with additional needs
all key stages

Music provides a unique way for pupils with SEND to achieve and shine when they may not be able to do this in other areas of the curriculum.

The ArtForms Inclusive Music Team, working closely in partnership with YAMSEN:Specially Music, has 40 years’ experience of leading music for pupils with SEND and runs weekly music sessions as well as activity days. All work is supported with appropriate instruments and props.
