Music is usually taught by class teachers. The lessons allow pupils to sing a variety of songs, compose and perform music with a wide range of instruments and to listen to a range of music thus developing their music appreciation skills. Music is a key feature of assemblies, providing pupils with the opportunity to listen to many different types of music and to perform their songs and compositions to an audience.

Instrumental Tuition

We currently subscribe to ‘Whole Class Ensemble Tuition’ which provides all pupils in Year 4 the opportunity to learn to play either a brass or string instrument and to borrow the instrument for practise at home. For those who wish to continue, there is the opportunity for small group tuition in Year 5 and Year 6. Specialist teachers, from the LA lead these lessons. Recorder tuition is offered to pupils in Key Stage 2 who wish to learn during lunchtimes. In addition, we have a Spanish guitar teacher who visits school weekly, from whom parents can purchase tuition.
