We aim that your child's life should be enriched by a range of musical experiences. The music in school will foster your child's sensitivity to and their understanding and enjoyment of music through an active involvement in listening, composing and performing.

The children have the opportunity to: learn individual instruments, sing in a choir and all pupils perform in the Christmas and Summer music concerts, as well as church services such as Harvest and Christingle. Music is delivered by a specialist teacher once a week to Class 2, and once a fortnight for Class 3 and 4.
See below the music objectives taught in each music topic in each school year.
See the whole school overview showing when topics are covered, the skills developed and the opportunities for composing and performing. The teaching resources used are mainly Music Express, Active Music, Notable Songs and Sing Up. Assessment is made by observations of the composition process, performances and discussions appraising different music genres and composers - see the assessment grid below.
