Music PPA Cover

Our Perform & Learn Music PPA Cover programme engages children through singing, creative rhythms and through exploring sounds and musical patterns.


Click here to download our PPA brochure.

The objectives of this programme:

  • For children to learn why Music is important, to become familiar with the names and sounds of all basic percussion instruments as well as other musical terms
  • For children to develop their creative thinking skills and improve their motor skills
  • To encourage children to become active listeners
  • To demonstrate that there are rewards from dedication and practice
  • To encourage children to learn about and to embrace other cultures through music
  • To develop confidence and listening skills
  • For children to explore emotions through music, helping them develop into young people and learn more about who they are.
  • To raise attainment and enthusiasm in Music lessons
  • To make children aware of the importance of teamwork and coordination in a team
  • To make Music fun!

Our Music teachers are also available to come out to your school during curriculum time, lunchtime or after school to provide one-to-one or group musical instrument sessions (instruments offered: guitar, ukulele, keyboard, djembe, drums). To enquire about Music Tuition in small groups or 1:1, please contact us.

Music can benefit school life for pupils and teachers in so many ways and Primary PPA Cover’s Music Specialists are keen to make Music fun for Primary children. We have found that by having a Music specialist:

  • Children are enthusiastic about Music and it increases self-esteem, discipline and encourages children to work as a team.
  • Children benefit in other areas of the curriculum through cross-curricular links such as Geography, History and Literacy
  • Teachers benefit from having a Music specialist on hand to organise singing assemblies, concerts, seasonal performances (Harvest Festival, Christmas etc.), and Year 6 leavers’ performances.

Children are excited about Music and want to participate in further Music classes, for more information on our extra-curricular Music provision (including our popular ‘Battle of the Bands’ Music Club) please click here.

What do our schools say?

"Lucy has been working with us for a number of months now and we are very impressed with her.  She is always prompt and well organised.  Lucy is professional in her manner and has a lovely way with the children.  Her lessons often seem exciting and engaging and feedback from staff and children is positive" Deputy Headteacher, Grangehurst Primary School.

Monday, July 06, 2020

2020 has seen unprecedented times that we, as a company, never thought we would find ourselves in. We would like to express our gratitude to our:

  • Amazing clients

Working in the public sector can be very challenging at times and we understand that for schools, it is difficult to appreciate the way that our business works. Thanks to the support of our schools and the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, we managed to waive over £300,000 of invoices to schools. This left us in a very difficult situation as we still have our HQ premises mortgage, bills to cover and suppliers that unfortunately have had to charge us regardless of the situation. We have lost approximately 10 schools for 2020-2021 due to COVID-19 and the budget cuts their schools have faced. We are very hopeful that these schools will return to us once they are open in September and have received funding support from the government.

  • Wonderful staff

Given one days notice that all schools in the UK would close, our staff had to frantically cancel over 90 PPA sessions daily, indefinitely. Throughout the peak of the crisis, we have had to work night and day to ensure the decisions we were making were going to have a minimal impact on our regular services once schools resumed. Our staff have taken the time to organise their work, to write new lesson plans for children and new schemes of work and we couldn’t be more grateful of their support. This truly shows their passion for the education sector and above all their love for children and learning!

  • Suppliers

To those suppliers who have been flexible with us during these unprecedented times, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Tsunami Computers Leicester, Lex AutoLease, WaterPlus and many more have allowed us to pause or reduce our monthly payments whilst we have received no income. This has made the difference between us surviving and not surviving the crisis. 

Going forwards, we will be rebuilding our business back up to where we were and support from schools in outsourcing their PPA to us to help us rebuild is greatly appreciated. We understand PPA time is a legal requirement for all teachers and the majority of the subjects that we cover are compulsory so if you are struggling to cover PPA time, would like to explore a new method of covering a compulsory subject such as MFL or ICT, please allow us to provide your school with a FREE trial and show you why you should choose us and support our small business.

We would like to send our well wishes to all small businesses both who have survived the crisis and who unfortunately have closed their doors. If you have managed to survive like us, please dig deep and find that energy to push forwards once more to rebuild your business rather than give up. The UK needs small businesses and even more so now with unemployment on the rise. It will be worth it, we promise!
