Musical School is the award winning online music programme from Charanga now being used by over 7,000 Primary schools to support their music teaching.
Following our big survey earlier this year, were delighted to be launching 2 great new features as a direct response to teachers feedback.
NEW Musical School Assessment Framework
NEW One-page lesson plans (to accompany the more detailed lesson teaching guides)
Musical School Assessment
Weve looked at all the great thinking that has been done on assessment from the ISM and others and created an easy-to-use framework that will be really useful for both music specialists and non-specialists.
In essence, there are 3 aspects to the assessment support were providing:
- End of Key Stage Expectations with the expected musical learning against which to assess
- One-page lesson plans with the facility for you to formatively (continuously) assess
- A digital evidence storage facility to help you build a musical E profile for classes and individual pupils
With Assessment Logs and Cultural and Personal Development Logs, the whole framework is flexible and over time will encourage children to take responsibility for their own musical learning with ever more exciting outcomes.

Surveys show that Musical Schools popularity derives from its ability to help teachers provide modern and effective music lessons that both they and the children greatly enjoy. Now with this new Assessment Framework, Musical School is an even more valuable music teaching tool.
