Our whole curriculum is shaped by our key principles, which aims to enable all children, regardless of background, ability, additional needs, to flourish and make links within their learning to the wider world.
We teach the National Curriculum, supported by clear skills and knowledge progression. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. During the year, all children will have the opportunity to develop their understanding, skills and techniques in music.
We welcome parents to music concerts and productions throughout the year to share the musical ability we have at our school. Our peripatetic teachers come into school to teach music lessons and are giving opportunities for children to learn and develop their skills from an experienced specialist teacher.
Children also have the opportunity to be a member of our school choir and take part in performances in the local community.
We use a published scheme of work called Charanga which supports our class provision. It has been selected because it uses a wide variety of musical sources which appeal to our children and provide diversity and support inclusion. The scheme of work is sequenced effectively to ensure that non-specialists are able to provide high quality lessons that meet the requirements of the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1 and 2. We have moved to using the Model Music Curriculum scheme as we feel it provides children with more music theory, better assessment opportunities and a chance to learn instruments.
