Music Curriculum Intent:
We believe that pupils have the right to access a broad and balanced curriculum, including the creative and performance arts. We want our children to leave us as creative individuals who have their own ideas. We want them to be confident performers who enjoy being musical.
Our music curriculum has been developed to ensure deep learning of the elements of music by repetition year on year. The creates an upward spiral of the skills needed to become confident in music. All children have access the fantastic music room which has supportive technology and a wide range of musical instruments. We have peripatetic teachers in school to allow children access to small group lessons. The children join in with large group singing in assemblies and we have music clubs at times during the year. We invite the children to listen and appraise performances of live and recorded music by musicians and each other.
We aim to develop creative and confident learners who understand musical elements and perform well individually and as a group.
