Nayland Primary School receives Music Mark award in recognition of high standards of music education
Nayland Primary School has voiced its pride, after becoming one of a select few schools in Suffolk to achieve a prestigious accolade in recognition of its music education.
The school, located in Bear Street, was presented with a Music Mark, which is given to education establishments with high standards of teaching music to its pupils.
Katie Coburn, deputy headteacher, told the Free Press the award was a testament to the school’s philosophy of using music to help students build up skills that can be transferred to other subjects, as well as an emphasis on music-based extracurricular activities.
“We are feeling extremely proud of our achievement,” she said. “We feel it can benefit you in all sorts of different areas of education.
“Children who are not very confident can flourish in music and then build confidence in other areas.”
