Sing Up has announced a partnership with Trinity College London, supporting schools taking part in Sing Up Day to achieve the Arts Award Discover.
Sing Up Day 2020 will be on Wednesday 11 March. It is free to take part in and anyone can get involved.
Sing Up are collaborating with Trinity College London who are discounting the cost of each Arts Award by 24% for those schools taking part, making the price only £3.05 per pupil. Schools taking advantage of this offer will simply need to enter the discount code “SingUp20” in the contextual information box of their Arts Award Discover submission.
How to achieve Arts Award
You can offer Arts Award to young people if you are a music/singing leader, class teacher, choir leader, youth worker, or project manager, for example. Norfolk Music Hub is an Arts Award Centre. If you are thinking of doing this Arts Award, please let us know!
The Sing Up Day song is called “There’s a Power in the Music” and you can find it on the Sing Up Song Bank now! Schools can access the Sing Up Day song free of charge. You do not need to have a full Sing Up licence.
- Teach the Sing Up Day song to your youth choir
- Hold a Big Sing at your school on or around 11 March 2020 and include the Sing Up Day song
- Use the song and playlist as a way of including singing in Whole Class Ensemble Teaching
- Teach the song to staff at your teacher network meetings
Here’s how to get started:
