The Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) has launched a
campaign to get music included on the new English Baccalaureate.
The society is asking its members and those working in the music
sector to write to the Education Select Committee of the House of
Commons, urging the government to include the subject.
Currently, the UK Government plans to award the qualification to students who receive A*– C passes in English, maths, science, a modern or ancient foreign language, and history or geography. The results will also be used to measure schools’ performance.
Template letters can be downloaded from the ISM’s website and must be received by 8 March.
