Annual Schools Survey

Kent Music co-ordinates and commissions music education programmes in and out of schools in Kent and is one of the 121 Music Education Hubs funded by Arts Council England on behalf of the Department for Education. As part of its funding agreement with Arts Council England (ACE), Kent Music is required to monitor the effectiveness of its programmes, and feedback its findings to ACE. To enable us to do this, since 2012, we have commissioned an external data company to work with us and help us undertake an online annual research study in Kent state schools.

The purpose of this survey is to collect information about musical activities currently taking place at your school and the completion of this survey means that schools become eligible to receive ring-fenced music funding from Kent Music. Non completion of this survey will result in funding not being available or being withheld (see terms and conditions below).

The data collected is collated and submitted to Arts Council England for each school as part of the Music Education Hub’s funding requirement from Arts Council England and the Department for Education. The data collected will also be used by Kent Music and our partners to inform planning for music education in Kent and to enhance our services, in line with data protection regulations.

The annual Kent Music Schools Survey was live from the 20 May 2019 until the 21 June 2019. We asked for information about the academic year 2018/19.

Any school that did not complete or return a valid survey during the above live period will not be able to access funds for Music Education for the Financial year 19/20. Your next opportunity to access the funding will be through completion of the 2019/20 annual survey which will be live in May 2020.

For more information on this please email cbaines@kent-music.com.
