We strive to inspire all of our children to develop a love of music and a desire to become able musicians. Our purpose through music is to increase our children’s self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
Our aims for Music

Our content for Music
The KAPOW Scheme of Work that we have adopted, successfully weaves the strands from the National Curriculum (Performing, Listening, Composing, The history of music and the Inter-related dimensions of music) into each of their units and builds upon the children’s prior learning. By following a scheme developed by music specialists, we are able to deliver comprehensive music lessons that ensure full National Curriculum coverage. As teachers, we are able to easily monitor the progress of our classes and guarantee that the necessary skills are attained to move learning forward.
