- Our intent is to provide a high-quality music education that engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music.
- Our curriculum ensures pupils experience and understand what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres.
- Our music sessions teach pupils to sing in tune, to understand how music is created, produced and communicated, and enable them to develop their curiosity for the subject by creating and composing music on their own and with others.
- Pupils are also given every opportunity to develop their skills and appreciation of music through instrument workshops, clubs and performances both in and out of school.
- Our music curriculum ensures pupils are provided with opportunities to sing, listen, play, perform and evaluate. This is embedded in the classroom through weekly music lessons as well as our singing assemblies and various concerts and performances.
- We teach the Music National Curriculum, supported by clear skills and knowledge progression. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all pupils.
- Every child has the opportunity to learn to play the Steel Pans in Year 4 and various singing projects are undertaken throughout KS1 and KS2.
- We have a large and very talented choir led by our music subject lead.
- Our peripatetic teachers who come into school to teach instrumental lessons provide opportunities for pupils to learn and develop their skills from an experienced specialist teacher. These achievements are celebrated through our annual Summer Music Concert.
- Pupils develop a love of music. Exposure to high quality teaching means pupils enjoy music, both from the performing and participation point but also through appreciation and evaluation of the work of others.
- Pupils demonstrate their understanding of key vocabulary through pupil voice evident during lessons and class books.
