On Monday 10th July, Services For Education visited Mayfield School, Birmingham, to put our brand-new music resource, Count Me In!, into action with joint author Sophie Gray, and Meri Izquierdo, PMLD Class Teacher at Mayfield School – a SEN school for over 300 students with Special Educational Needs.
In partnership with The University of Roehampton, Count Me In! is an engaging, practical resource that sets out twelve original projects for making music inclusively with children and young people of all ages who have special abilities or needs.
An initiative to help support non-music specialists deliver in special schools, Count Me In! was created as part of the inspiring sounds project, funded by Youth Music.
You can watch our full feature below and find out more about Count Me In! here.
A huge thank you to everyone at Mayfield and ITV Central for making this possible, we can’t wait to see the impact our Count Me In! resource will have on children with special educational needs.
