We have devised this assessment framework to support music teachers in rewarding the development of children through music.

What Croydon Music Stars do:

• Reward pupils progress

• Measure progress against the National Curriculum

• Support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of children through music

• Support the cultural life of the school

• Provide a common assessment framework for music teachers to support close working between classroom teachers and instrumental/vocal teachers

How they do it:

• Pupils meet criteria and complete tasks as musicians at five levels, through teacher assessment

• School informs CMA of pupils and their level

• CMA provides certificates which can be presented in assembly

• There is no cost to schools or parents
