Music

The school has built a strong tradition in this area and has been accredited with the Artsmark Gold Award. All classes have regular music lessons. Pupils are taught rhythm and pitch and are introduced to a basic understanding of musical notation in line with National Curriculum requirements. They are exposed to a wide range of musical styles and experience making compositions of their own.

In addition to their weekly music lessons, a large number of pupils now learn to play a musical instrument. From Year 3 onwards pupils have the opportunity to learn an instrument. This year all pupils in Year 4 have been learning to play the violin with a music specialist, and also benefit from a visiting singing teacher. Pupils are also offered the chance to learn woodwind, guitar, strings or percussion, with teaching from visiting specialists. Pupils also have the opportunity to join a steel pan club and the school choir. Children have a number of opportunities to perform to an audience through school assemblies and performances to parents.
