Music Curriculum Team
High-Quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, in order to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, listen, appraise and evaluate. Like all learning, music should be enjoyed and explored, so children will have formal and informal opportunities in order to develop their own opinions and preferences about music.
We believe that singing is a truly inclusive musical activity that transcends all economical and academic boundaries and research suggests that it has a huge benefit on the wellbeing and the learning potential of our children. Music and performance can help pupils to become confident individuals while also developing teamwork and a sense of collective responsibility, all of which are essential skills in such a challenging geographical locality.
