Hackney Music Service Partners are also regularly invited to attend these sessions to share the opportunities they have on offer and sometimes to lead additional twilight / CPD sessions in their particular fields of expertise as appropriate.

Invitations to attend these meetings are sent out to all primary Head Teachers and designated Music Leads. If there is no designated Music Lead in a particular school we strongly encourage Head Teachers to nominate an alternative member of staff to attend.
