Music Therapy

Pupil premium has been used to fund some of the music therapy sessions at The Shurbberies School. This financial allocation has allowed the children that participate in music therapy sessions to foster a sense of self and self-confidence, through the improvised music that they create in sessions. They have been able to communicate on a level with which they feel comfortable, using the wide range of handheld percussion, drums, piano and simple woodwind instruments available. This communication can sometimes feel like the first step to being understood and this can transfer into other areas of their lives, both at school and at home.
