“Music is Music, and for that reason alone it is essential for all schools.”
- Mark Phillips Senior HMI and National Lead for Music at Ofsted
Our school has a resident Music specialist who follows the new guidelines for the Music curriculum, published in March 2021.
Although the music topics vary with each year group and are adapted to match the whole school curriculum, pupils learn to progress within each of the musical skills.
Children learn to develop an understanding of the interrelation of music while learning how to listen and appraise music, sing in a choir setting, read music notation and apply the learnt solfège, practise drumming skills, improvise and compose ostinatos and lyrics, and perform to an audience.
