WFMEH Inclusive Music Strategy 2021-2025
Our strategy sets out plan for building a culture of inclusive music education, where all children and young people are valued and recognised for their unique qualities, ideas, voices and perspectives and where they can see the Hub providing a range of diverse musical opportunities and progression pathways.
Who we are...
Waltham Forest Music Education Hub (WFMEH) was formed in 2018 and is led by Waltham Forest Music Service (WFMS).
We believe that every child in Waltham Forest should have access to a high quality music education.
We’re committed to making sure children and young people have a music education that’s inspiring, enjoyable and fun and are provided with challenge and opportunities to progress.
