Our Music curriculum, in alignment with the National Curriculum, aims to foster a lifelong love and appreciation for music in our pupils. We believe that Music plays a vital role in enriching our pupils’ lives, promoting creativity, self-expression, cultural understanding, and personal development through active engagement with a diverse range of musical experiences, traditions, and practices.

Our Music curriculum is designed to develop learners who have:

  • a widening repertoire which they use to create original, imaginative, fluent and distinctive composing and performance work;
  • A musical understanding underpinned by high levels of aural perception, internalisation and knowledge of music, including high or rapidly developing levels of technical expertise;
  • Good awareness and appreciation of different musical traditions and genres;
  • An excellent understanding of how musical provenance – the historical, social and cultural origins of music – contributes to the diversity of musical styles;
  • The ability to give precise written and verbal explanations, using musical terminology effectively, accurately and appropriately;
  • A passion for and commitment to a diverse range of musical activities.
