A teacher of note: Goose Green’s head of music wins Classic FM award

An East Dulwich primary school teacher felt “humbled” after winning Classic FM’s Primary School Music Teacher Award.

Robert Parton, who teaches at Goose Green Primary School in East Dulwich, was shortlisted for the award after being nominated by a parent.

The award was presented to him on July 11 by Classic FM presenter Myleene Klass, after he was picked by a panel of expert judges.

Parton joined the school ten years ago, and has spent the last eight years as its head of music.

He said: “I felt very humbled when the parents of Goose Green Primary School nominated me for this award.

“I have been fortunate to be able to work in a school that values the arts so highly and support the weird and wacky ideas I have put to them over the years. A huge thanks to all who have made it possible.”
