Music at Mabel Pritchard School

Mabel Prichard School

One of our last projects before the world was turned upside down by the pandemic was at Mabel Prichard School, in Oxfordshire. Mabel Prichard School is a community special school for children and young people with complex needs from the ages of 2 to 19. The school says ‘We believe in enabling every student to discover who they are and to realise their full potential. Our curriculum offers a broad range of opportunities to face challenge; develop independence; prepare for adulthood; discover the world around them; be safe and develop the skills and knowledge to lead a happy, positive and fulfilled life.’

Recognising the importance of music for their students, the school invited Jessie’s Fund to run a project: children and young adults went on a musical journey, taking part in musical workshops and using music as an alternative way to communicate.  That’s TV South Midlands went in to observe, and created and broadcast a lovely memory of the project.
