Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
Our music curriculum, taught through the Charanga programme, is closely aligned to the National Curriculum, ensuring pupils are able to:
Our curriculum is enhanced through specialist music teaching provided by Services for Education. All pupils participate in peripatetic singing lessons in Reception and Year 1 and in Year 4 all pupils have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument. Pupils who show a particular interest and flair in Year 4 then have the opportunity to continue to play the instruments in Years 5 and 6.
Pupils are taught to sing through weekly singing assemblies giving them the chance to encounter a wide selection of music and giving them the chance to perform in public. Some pupils also choose to take part in our school choir.
