This afternoon I visited another primary school...

I visited St Matthew's CE Primary School where Heather Lacey, the new headteacher, is doing a great job building on some strong foundations to create a great school to serve this rich multicultural community. Heather and I walked around the school and it was really encouraging to meet Heather's talented colleagues and some of her great children. It was also good to see colleagues from Artforms working in the school on the 'Music Passport' initiative. Youth Music developed its Passport to Music as a major new pledge to the last Government's Music Manifesto aimed at improving in music education in schools and communities. The scheme combines a physical passport which children are given, with an interactive website which children and young people can use to identify music making opportunities available to them in their local area.

Heather and her talented colleagues are doing a great job and together they are building something really special at St Matthew's CE Primary School.
