Music Curriculum Intent

National Curriculum


Our pupils experience a broad and enriched ‘Arts’ curriculum incorporating: music, drama, art and design. Children are encouraged to listen to and play a range of musical instruments. They learn to sing with confidence and perform to an audience. Later the children learn to use musical structures and notation. The children study the history of music; its composers and traditions. Pupils can develop skills in school lessons and also with peripatetic music support. Music is used for assemblies, liturgical celebrations and concerts and often as an aspect of themes and topics in other subjects. Musicians of all abilities have opportunities to perform in front of an audience in plays, concerts and larger scale musical performances.
