The school believes that high quality music Education will engage and inspire our pupils to
develop their love of music and their talent as musicians. This experience and achievement will
then increase their self-confidence and creativity.
The Aim of our Music curriculum is for children:
- To perform, listen to and review a wide range of music.
- To learn to sing and use their voices.
- To have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and to be exposed to a range of choices.
- To have a solid foundation in music theory and terminology that they can draw upon should they chose to learn music later in life.
The School implements the Music Curriculum in the following ways:
- KS1 and years 4-6 are taught 7 lessons a term by a music tutor from Junior Jam, a specialist provider.
- The school keeps a detailed record of Junior Jam Objectives and ensures that there is adequate coverage of and progression within, the National Curriculum.
- Every year, children use both percussion and tuned instruments to develop the expected skills relevant to each Key Stage.
- Year 3 receive class recorder lessons from Ealing Music Service for a whole academic year
- Children are given opportunities to develop confidence in performing, either using their voices or a musical instrument. These are class performances or recitals to demonstrate particular achievements in their chosen instruments.
- Children are given opportunities to access and evaluate a wide range of musical genres;
- Musical achievements gained both inside and outside of school hours will be celebrated within the school community.
- The school offers subsidised small group tuition in brass, keyboard and woodwind.
