Why Do We Need Your Consent?

Mini Musicians is being studied by the University of Roehampton and all children that participate will be entered for an inclusive music accreditation, awarded by Trinity College London.

As a Comparison School participant, are asking for two different types of consent from you for your child:

1) Research Study Consent

We need your consent for your child to participate in the research study being conducted by The University of Roehampton, which hopes to evaluate the impact of the programme. This involves creating video and audio recordings of your child’s responding to a short, fun series of musical activities in a one-to-one session during Spring Term 2024 and again in Summer Term 2025, when your child is in Year 2. Researchers are also asking for your permission to gain access to some of your child’s personal data, which will be pseudonymised (your child’s name will be removed from the dataset).

2) Study Communication Consent

We would like to share the findings of the Roehampton University study with colleagues in the wider music education sector. In order to do this, we need your consent to share anonymised video and audio recordings and pupil data in publications and at conferences. Your child’s face will be blurred in any videos shared for this purpose.
