Curriculum Intent for Music

Our Music curriculum inspires children’s love of music by giving them the opportunity to experience a range of music and composers including live music. They are taught to, listen to, evaluate, compose and perform a range of music from a variety of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions using the Charanga Musical School.


Purpose of study

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.


The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the interrelated dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations

Peace Proms 2020

Still image for this video
What an amazing day we had at the Liverpool M&S Arena for Peace Proms on Saturday! Along with 2500 other children, and for an audience of over 4000, our Key Stage 2 children sang their hearts out and danced along to an array of songs old and new including Disney and pop medleys. Conducted by internationally acclaimed UK music educator Greg Beardsell, the concert was jam packed with singing, dancing and musical performances. We enjoyed performances by musical-theatre vocalists, a rock-violinist, All-Ireland Champion Uilleann Piper, the Colmcille Pipe and Drum Corps from Derry, Highland Dancers from Belfast and Irish Dancers. As a school, we always aim to create memorable experiences for our children, and I know this is an experience the children will remember for years and years to come.
