Our children are given opportunities to perform, compose and listen to music.
Other areas of the curriculum and project based work are complemented by musical activities and as such, the pupils are introduced to a wide range of styles and traditions. They are encouraged to appreciate music’s rich variety and above all, to enjoy music making. Pupils in Year 4 have the opportunity to learn to play the flute via the School’s Music Service and Key Stage 2 have the opportunity to learn the keyboard. Pupils have the opportunity to continue with this tuition in Years 5 and 6. We do not charge for any musical enrichment opportunities. We employ a singing teacher to deliver weekly music sessions to all pupils in key stage 1 and key stage 2.
Pupils are also given opportunities to participate in an extra-curricular Choir club which is supported by a vocal coach, Phillipa Rosson. The choir performs regularly at lunch time, at music festivals and in the local community.
We follow the National Curriculum 2014 programmes of study ensuring progression in knowledge, skills and understanding.
