It is the role of schools to deliver the curriculum. Music education hubs were established to drive up the quality and consistency of music education across the country, and to that end are funded to work with children in all state-funded schools in England. This means that hubs work with all schools, including academies and free schools, to meet local needs, at the same time as ensuring that all children experience high quality music education. The roles and responsibilities of schools and music education hubs are detailed in the national plan for music education, attached, which the department has committed to refreshing for 2020 and beyond.
