									                       Quality Assurance

Investment

We are committed to working towards investing effectively in all our employees in
the Music Service to further their own professional and personal development.
Recruitment We advertise nationally for staff, and have stringent interviews
according to LEA selection and recruitment procedures. This includes the standard
police and medical checks undergone by all teachers (staff appointments).

Standards

Staff are selected for their specialist skills and maintain a high standard of
teaching through regular monitoring (including verbal and written feedback) and
in - service training. The Service is committed to Investors in People, a national
standard for staff development and training. This is accordance with the
statement: "We are committed to working towards investing effectively in all our
employees in the Music Service to further their own professional and personal
development. We are also monitored by the LEA, and staff are often included in
school OFSTED inspections.

Links

We encourage close links between instrumental and class music and all our staff
plan their work according to an Instrumental/Vocal Scheme of Work which is
linked to the National Curriculum. All staff issue regular progress reports for all
pupils, and we encourage parental involvement in regular practice through the
HMS Practice Book. Our GCSE workshops which are on offer to schools, reflect the
requirements of the exam syllabus which in turn are based on the National
Curriculum.

Performance Skills

We encourage the development of performing skills and are proud of the quality
of our high profile end of term concerts. The music service has nine ensembles, of
which the Hounslow Youth Orchestra is the senior orchestra and one for which
other ensembles are, in a sense, training orchestras. It is a full symphony
orchestra and has given many public concerts, several of which have been at the
Albert Hall.
