Music Vision Statement
'If you give a kid an instrument and the appetite, they'll not only play music from the cannon they'll make up their own music and that's why it's important.' Lenny Henry
We recognise that music is a form of communication and a way for children to express themselves. We aim to deliver a high-quality music curriculum which engages children, increases their self-confidence, creativity and imagination, and provides opportunities for self-expression and a sense of personal achievement. Throughout each key stage, children have the opportunity to perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions.
We offer opportunities for students to develop their talents in all aspects of music including singing, composition, rhythm work, instrumental skills and appreciation. From EYFS to Key Stage 2, children have the opportunity to play a musical instrument. Having the opportunity to play in small groups or ensemble helps to develop important life skills such as co-operation, mutual support, self discipline and commitment. Through our curriculum planning, and our Musician of the Month, we look at a variety of great composers and musicians in order to inspire pupils and develops a love of music.
The golden thread throughout our whole curriculum is the intent to improve health, raise aspirations and promote diversity.
